Apart from taking symptomatic treatment Take tablet folvite 5mg once a day and tablet vitaminD (60000iu) once a week for six months
Muscle dystrophy is a condition in which progressive weakness develops. Unfortunately no effective medicine available till now in modern medicine. Few centres are trying stem cell and gene therapy but all are under research process. Before saying it is dystrophy other causes of progressive muscle weakness like metabolic, and inflammatory muscle disease must be rule out. Because these conditions are treatable. Visit a neurologist and rheumatologist for proper evaluation.

In muscle dystrophy cases the improvement is very slow just continue the physiotherapy .
