Hi sir, muscular dystrophy is a muscle degenerative condition. Physiotherapy treatment is the best option. Exercises should be given to keep the muscles in active state and stabilise the joints. Stability is needed for sitting ,standing, walking. If you have any doubt regarding physio you can consult or chat me, I will help you.

I am having muscular dystrophy, is it safe for me to go for cupping therapy or chiropractic therapy for neck n back stiffness.

Cupping therapy is fine, but, chiropractic is tricky. If a joint has muscle weakness, better avoid chiropractic.

Hello, Muscular dystrophy is a group of disorders characterized by a progressive loss of muscle mass and consequent loss of strength.The most common form of muscular dystrophy - Duchenne muscular dystrophy - typically affects young boys, but other variations can strike in adulthood.Currently, there is no cure for muscular dystrophy, but certain physical and medical treatments can improve symptoms and slow the disease's progression. I suggest to do ganeral light exercises to maintain strength and Range but not get overtired and avoide weights and resistive for exercises as theses kind of exercises will increase muscle breakdown and result in increase weakness. By doing correct exercises we can refuse the progress and effect of disease. Do let me know if you need any further help.

Hello, duchenne muscular dystrophy is x linked recessive disorder. Which means female can be carrier of the disease but remain unaffected from the disease & can pass on the disease to their son. Unfortunately there is no effective treatment for the condition. As far as diagnostic tests are concerned raised C kinase level in blood indicates Muscular dystrophy. Deficiency of dystrophy protein also indicates DMD. You can also go for muscle biopsy hopefully it clears you doubt.
