Muscular Dystrophy (MD) is a group of muscle diseases that weaken the musculoskeletal system and hamper locomotion.
Muscular dystrophies are characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness, defects in muscle proteins, and the death of muscle cells and tissue.
There is no known cure for muscular dystrophy, Physical therapy, and occupational therapy are essential in the management of this disease.
