Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy is a group of genetic diseases that affect the muscles, causing them to become weak and shrink over time. This can cause a person to lose the ability to move and to eventually become confined to a wheelchair. Muscular dystrophy is a serious disorder that can shorten a person's lifespan and cause an immense amount of physical and psychological suffering. It has no cure, but treatments and therapies can help slow the progression of the disease, improve mobility and reduce pain. Research into muscular dystrophy is ongoing and making strides in improving both the understanding and management of the condition.
