Children with neuromuscular disease experience progressive muscle deterioration and a continual decline in physical function.1
Signs and symptoms usually begin in early infancy, but it can take a long time before a child is diagnosed.1,2 This means missing out on early treatments and interventions that can significantly improve these young patients’ futures.
This module will help you recognise the early signs of muscle disease so you can refer your patients with confidence.
