Muscular Dystrophy is a hereditary condition marked by progressive weakening and wasting of the muscles. MD weakens muscles over time, so children, teens, and adults who have the disease can gradually lose the ability to do the things most people take for granted, like walking or sitting up.
MD usually begins in the teenage years. It causes progressive weakness in muscles of the face, arms, legs, and around the shoulders and chest. It progresses slowly and can vary in symptoms from mild to disabling. Each type of muscular dystrophy is different from the others. It is important to get help as early as possible.
