Muscular Dystrophy refers to progressive neuromuscular genetic disorders where the muscles gradually lose their strength leading to complete immobility and dependence on others for everyday activities. Muscular Dystrophy can occur at any age and can affect more than one sibling in a family.
In India, more than 4000 children are born with Muscular Dystrophy (MD) each year. There are primarily 9 types of Muscular Dystrophy with varying levels of progression and symptoms.
