Initial assessment of a patient presenting with muscle weakness is followed by a focused physical examination, as shown in this video. Physical assessments of muscle strength and function can be used quickly and easily in the office setting to identify patients with a potential neuromuscular disease or other muscle disorder, and allow the patient to be referred for further testing and diagnosis.
