Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular Dystrophy (MD) is a genetic disease that damages the muscles, making them progressively weaker. There’s no cure for MD, though medications and therapy can slow the rate of deterioration caused by the disease. This section of the AMS Vans blog provides in-depth articles about people who live with MS and how they learned to cope with the everyday challenges in their lives. You’ll learn about risk factors, causes, symptoms, complications, tests/diagnosis, treatments/drugs, coping through adapted lifestyles, home remedies and organizations that support individuals living with Muscular Dystrophy.
