Hello, welcome to healthcaremagic. There is no cure for any form of muscular dystrophy but medications and therapy can slow the course of the disease. Symptoms of muscular dystrophy often can be relieved through exercise, physical therapy
, rehabilitative devices, respiratory care, and surgery. Exercise and physical therapy can minimize abnormal or painful positioning of the joints and may prevent or delay curvature of the spine. Respiratory care, deep breathing, and coughing exercises are often recommended. Surgery can sometimes relieve muscle shortening. In Duchenne muscular dystrophy
, corticosteriods may slow muscle destruction. In myotonic muscular dystrophy
, procainamide, or quinine
can treat delayed muscle relaxation. Medications also can be prescribed for some muscular dystrophy-related heart problems. Wish you good health.
