Every muscle receives nerve supply from nerves that split into smaller nerve fibers.

Injections are also recommended along with OT services when working with neuromuscular blockage. Sensory impairments may be affected after a TBI, affecting hearing and/or vision. Injury to optic nerves, visual processing, or the the cranium affecting the eye movements are all types of visual impairments associated with TBI. This may lead to double vision, shaking eye movements, and lower vision perception. This type of trauma affecting vision can eventually lead to blindness.

Treacher Collins syndrome is a genetic disorder that affects the development of craniofacial. It results abnormalities in face and head due to hypoplasia of facial structures such as the lower jaw (mandible), cheekbones and abnormal small chin micrognathia. In addition, some patients with this syndrome are also born with an abnormal opening in the roof of the mouth (cleft palate), but in severe cases, hypoplasia of the facial bones may restrict the infant’s airway of breathing causing life-threatening respiratory
In people with Marfan syndrome, this "glue" is weaker than normal. That 's because of a defect in the body 's production of fibrillin (pronounced: fuh-BRIL-in), a special type of protein that 's found in connective tissue. Weakened connective tissue can lead to problems in many parts of the body, especially the heart, eyes, and joints. For example, people with Marfan syndrome often have very loose, flexible joints as a result
Injury or weakness can cause the inner portion of the disk to extend through the outer ring. This is known as a slipped or herniated disk. This causes pain and discomfort. If the slipped disk constricts one of the spinal nerves, people may also experience numbness and pain along the affected nerve. In severe instances, surgery may be needed in order to remove or repair the slipped disk.

Causes: The cause of Crohn 's disease is unknown. However, it is likely due to an abnormal response of the immune system.
This disease breaks down the coating of nerve fibers or axons, those are called Myelin Sheath.
