In brief: VERY broad spectrum
There is a broad spectrum of disorders, including diseases of the spinal cord (myelopathies), nerves (neuropathies), neuromuscular junction, and muscle itself.
Within each location, there are metabolic, infectious, inflammatory, genetic, and many other types of diseases. That is part of what makes it interesting- there are so many possibilities to consider!
