Muscular Dystrophy

What is Muscular Dystrophy?

Muscular dystrophy is a set of over 30 genetic conditions affecting the muscles. It is rare for the conditions to occur spontaneously because the root gene mutations are typically inherited. As time goes on, people with muscular dystrophy might find it harder to move, walk, and do regular day-to-day activities. Some types of muscular dystrophy happen when you are a child, while others show up when you are older. Duchenne is the most common form in children, and myotonic is the most common in adults. Few people have muscular dystrophy, but there are treatments to increase comfort.
