What is the treatment for muscular dystrophy?

Dear Dr.
Good Morning. I'm 25 years, suffering from 'Muscular Dystrophy' since childhood.Neither I can walk/move nor sitting properly at present whenever I try to walk, felt down on the ground and that's why I could not complete my graduation (B-Com)and seems all the hope and dream doors will be closed for me! Please help me duly advised your valuable suggestions about treatment.
Please acknowledge receipt.
Thanking you,
Yours faithfully,
Supriyo Banerjee.

Dear Sir,

There is no effective treatment for muscular dystrophy although steroids have been tried with variable benefit . Physiotherapy is most useful asset .
