Physical therapy can make all the difference in Duchenne muscular dystrophy
Physical therapy for Duchenne muscular dystrophy is unique and requires specific knowledge of the disorder to provide appropriate treatment. Treating a patient with Duchenne without the proper understanding of the disease puts the patient at risk of further muscle damage and function loss. When applied correctly, physical therapy treatment has the potential to improve the lives and slow the progression of some of the disease impairments. CureDuchenne welcomes you to use our programs and resources to stay up to date with Duchenne treatment.
