The Neuromuscular Clinic is a multidisciplinary clinic that specializes in the evaluation, diagnosis and care of infants, children, teens and young adults with neuromuscular disorders.
The diagnosis of a neuromuscular disorder in a child can be difficult for families. Our team provides family-centered care and support throughout the process of diagnosis and treatment of neuromuscular disorders. We recognize that every child’s needs are different and each patient needs to be treated as an individual.
Our multidisciplinary neuromuscular team includes experts from neurology, rehabilitation medicine, pulmonary, physical therapy, respiratory therapy, clinical nutrition, neuropsychology, social work and genetic counseling, along with a clinical care coordinator, MDA health care coordinator and equipment specialists. Our clinic also has care partners in cardiology, endocrinology, orthopedics and all pediatric services at Children’s Hospital Colorado.
Diagnostic services available through our clinic include:
During your visit to the Neuromuscular Clinic at Children's Colorado, your child will be evaluated by multiple members of our team. A typical visit will take about three hours. We recommend that you bring toys, books and snacks to occupy the time.
Please also bring records of any prior testing performed elsewhere, such as x-rays, MRI scans, muscle biopsy slides, EMG reports, lab testing results and consults or medical reports/records.
The Neuromuscular Clinic is actively involved in the training of the neuromuscular specialist of the future. You will likely encounter trainees in medicine, nursing, physical therapy, respiratory therapy and genetic counseling. They are here to learn and their inquisitiveness enhances patient care.
Our current ongoing research studies are listed below. Patients and families who participate in these studies are pioneers in the development of treatment for neuromuscular disorders and may improve the quality of life for themselves and others.
