Doctor, how to check for lower motor neuron lesion and how to diagnose lower motor neuron lesion?

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Motor neurons are nerve cells whose cell bodies are found in the brain, brainstem or spinal cord, and their endings are also found in the spinal cord or in certain muscles and glands. Motor neurons are divided into two, upper motor neurons (brain, brain stem, spinal cord) and lower motor neurons (spinal nerves, muscles, glands).

To check for certain nerve abnormalities whether there are in the upper or lower motor neurons, usually by assessing muscle strength, asking the patient to perform certain movements, determining normal and abnormal reflexes, or using a more sophisticated examination using MRI.

While examples of lower motor neuron diseases are cauda equina syndrome, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and guillain-barre syndrome. Hope it answers your question.
