Atrophic Muscular Disorders, or Muscular Atrophy, is a group of disease that hinder movement because of the deterioration and loss of muscle tissue. There are two types of Atrophic Muscular Disorders: Disuse atrophy and neurogenic atrophy. Disuse atrophy is when a muscle is not used enough and muscle tone begins to decrease. Neurogenic atrophy is when a disease or injury damages a nerve that connects to the muscle. There are many possible causes of Atrophic Muscular Disorders including ALS, stroke, muscular dystrophy, and immobilization. There is no treatment for Atrophic Muscular Disorders, but continued exercise is recommended depending on the cause.
