Ayer Neuroscience Institute Neuromuscular Center

Most neuromuscular disorders are rare, but they can be life-altering.

Our goal is to improve function, so that individuals with these disorders can live the fullest lives possible.

Neuromuscular disorders - such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease), muscular dystrophy, myasthenia gravis, spinal muscular atrophy and neuropathy - occur when problems with the nerves and muscles in the body affect muscle function. Because of the complex and debilitating nature of these conditions, it’s critical to seek care from a multidisciplinary team of experts like those at Hartford HealthCare’s Ayer Neuroscience Institute.

Our neuromuscular specialists collaborate with experts from other disciplines to offer the most advanced care tailored your individual needs. This includes the work in our Neuropathy Center. There, our team treats neuropathy – nerve damage that can cause pain, numbness, muscle weakness and other symptoms – as more than a disease. It’s a set of challenges to living your best life.
