In brief: Disorder related

There are many neuromuscular diseses, treatment is specific to the disorder when possible.
In myasthenia gravis treatment may include surgery, immunospression and medication to improve n-m transmission. There are inflammatory muscle disorders that require prolonged immunosupression. There are nerve and muscle disorders associated with vitamin deficiencies. In others we can only treat symptoms.

In brief: Which one?

Cannot answer unless you narrow down which one you are talking about.
As you can imagine, the exact treatment will be different for ALS versus myasthenia versus spinal muscular atrophy etc.
