Muscular dystrophy which is commonly found in boys in the age bracket of 7-15 years is a group of diseases that cause progressive weakness and loss of muscle mass. In muscular dystrophy abnormal genes in the body interfere with the production of proteins needed to form healthy muscle.
It is very difficult to diagnose if the parents ignore the symptoms in the child which are clumsiness in walking or improper gait, frequent falling, walking on toes, not able to run or jump. There's no cure for muscular dystrophy. But medications and therapy can help manage symptoms and slow the course of the disease.
Even when the parents or family members notice the symptoms they do not have an ideas as to the which doctor they should go to. Mostly the parents go to an orthopaedician or a paediatrician. If your doctor has seen sufficient number of such cases, he or she would order enzyme tests, genetic testing, electromyography, ecg, echo and pft.
The results of these tests would help in diagnosing muscular dystrophy. The treatment for the disease is being done by neurologists, orthopaedicians and physical therapists. The best however would be peadiatric neurologist who are difficult to find in most of the indian cities.
Several types of physical therapy and assistive devices can improve the quality of life in people who have muscular dystrophy. Stretching Exercises will prevent rapid contraction of the muscles and the joints from becoming inflxible.
Aerobic exercises like swimming and walking also help in maintaining the strength and mobility of the muscles and the joints. Braces are commonly used for dentures but in muscular dystrophy cases we can use braces in other muscles of the body to prevent them from contracting. Walking aids and breathing exercises also help in improving the quality and longevity of life in muscular dystrophy patients.
