Brief Answer:
A newer hope has come with research for atrophy VBP15

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I have studied your case.

Till now there is no cure for muscular atrophy which is a progressive muscular disorder
A newer hope has come with research for atrophy VBP15, a novel anti-inflammatory and membrane-stabilizer, improves muscular atrophy without side effects

But you will have to wait till medicine comes after passing all trial.

You may consult physiotherapist for guidance. He may start TENS, or ultrasound which is helpful in your case. If required you can use orthotic supportive for improving walking.

Hope this answers your query. If you have additional questions or follow up queries then please do not hesitate in writing to us. I will be happy to answer your queries.

Wishing you good health.

Take care
