What is Muscular Dystrophy?
Muscular Dystrophy is a genetic, neuromuscular condition which results in the progressive deterioration of muscle strength and function. Muscular Dystrophy is an umbrella term commonly used to describe more than 60 types of complex, degenerative Neuromuscular Conditions (NMCs), and affects 1 in 1000 people of all ages.
