Neuromuscular Centre Midlands – What we do!
NMC Midlands is a charity set up to offer support to people with muscular dystrophy and other muscle wasting diseases in the Midlands region. 70,000 people suffer from muscle wasting disease over the UK and around 12,000 of these are in the Midlands region alone.
Sufferers of these diseases experience a significant reduction in the amount of physiotherapy they receive from the NHS after turning the age of 19. The correct physiotherapy is essential to people with muscle wasting diseases as it maintains mobility and reduces the rate of muscle deterioration. One of the main services NMC Midlands offers is free and continuous specialist physiotherapy for sufferers of these diseases. In addition we have services available to offer support for other areas of life that become challenging to people with muscle wasting diseases. To find out more about the wide range of services we have on offer and on how to get in touch with us please click on the ‘About us’ tab at the top of this web page.
