How does muscular dystrophy affect children?

KDAH

Muscular Dystrophy is a group of genetic disorders, affecting children, characterized by progressive weakening and degeneration of muscles over time. The condition can impact various aspects of their lives like their ability to walk, stand, or perform daily activities. They may also have difficulties with motor skills such as climbing stairs, getting up from a sitting position, or lifting objects. Various treatments and therapies including physical therapy, medications, assistive devices and sometimes surgery can help manage symptoms, slow the progression of the disease, and improve the quality of life for affected children. #musculardystrophy #geneticdisorder
