Neuromuscular Committee

The APCP Neuromuscular Committee focuses on work with children who have acquired and genetic conditions affecting the function of muscles, either directly as a muscle disease or caused by disorders of the peripheral nerves, motor neurones in the spinal cord or the neuromuscular junctions which supply them, e.g. muscular dystrophies, spinal muscular atrophy, congenital myopathies, hereditary neuropathies and congential myasthenic syndromes. 

The committee supports the role of therapists working with this group of children in specialist units and in the community.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not hold a separate membership list of members interested in neuromuscular conditions.  Committee vacancies will be advertised annually and so any members wishing to get more actively involved should look out for these.

What do we do?

The Neuromuscular Committee aims to support members by providing training and resources related to Neuromuscular Disorders to support continuing professional benefit and promote best best practice.  Follow the links below for more information.

We also try to promote the role of physiotherapy in the management of Neuromuscular Disorders and work closely with MD-UK in this respect.

We are also happy to answer member's individual questions - you can either use the Contact Us link below or if you have a clinical query, why not post a discussion in the paediatric iCSP network?
