Guillain Barre Syndrome (GBS): Guillain Barre Syndrome impacts the immune system and attacks your nerves. The damage to the nerves causes muscle weakness and sometimes paralysis. While its cause is not fully understood, the syndrome often follows infection with a virus or bacteria (CDC,2023). Individuals with GBS have varying levels of functioning; some may require a chest brace; some may require a wheelchair or walker to move about. GBS can impact gross motor muscle movements ranging from weak muscles and paralysis (CDC,2o23).
