WHAT IS MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY DISEASE?

A muscular dystrophy is a group of diseases that weaken the muscles over time. The damage is caused due to the lack of a protein in the body. It’s a specific protein which is called dystrophin vital for normal muscle functioning. There are different types of muscular dystrophy that can occur at any age. Young boys are more prone to develop this disease compared to girls. The patient suffering from muscular dystrophy faces problems in muscle coordination. In many cases, they even lose their ability to walk. There are different kinds of muscular dystrophy. It’s symptoms begin in childhood, mostly in boys. Other types don’t surface until adulthood.
Muscular dystrophy is a group of over 30 conditions that damages the body muscles. Without any treatment, the condition can get worse over time. The main symptom of muscular dystrophy is muscle weakness. Depending on the type of muscular dystrophy, specific signs and symptoms begin.

TYPE OF MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY

  • Duchenne type

This is the most common type of muscular dystrophy which is more prevalent among boys. Around one-third of boys detected with this disease don’t have a family history of muscular dystrophy. There are some specific sign and symptoms that the patient’s body show like difficulty in standing from sitting up position, frequent falls, difficulty in running, walking on the toes, muscle stiffness and pain, etc.

  • Becker muscular dystrophy

The sign and symptoms of Becker muscular dystrophy are similar to that of the Duchenne type. However, it tends to be mild and progress slowly. These symptoms usually begin in the teens but may not be noticeable until the mid-20s.

  • Myotonic Muscular dystrophy

It’s the most common form of adult-onset muscular dystrophy. The facial and neck muscles often get affected in this muscular dystrophy.

  • Facioscapulohumeral (FSHD)

The muscle weakness often occurs in the shoulders and face. Sometimes the shoulder blades stick out like wings when an FSHD patient raises their arm.

  • Congenital

It’s a type of muscular dystrophy that affects both boys and girls. In some cases, the disease progresses slowly and causes only mild disability. In other cases, the spread is quick and leads to severe impairment.

  • Limb-girdle

The patient suffering from this type of disorder usually finds difficulty in moving the front part of the foot. The onset often occurs in the childhood phase or the teen years.

  • Oculopharyngeal

The onset of this muscular dystrophy occurs in the age group of 40 to 70 years. The eyelids, throat, and face are the first few areas that get affected. It’s followed by the shoulder and pelvis.

TREATMENT FOR MUSCULAR DYSTROPHY DISORDER

Your body’s s are used to treat Muscular dystrophy disorder. The research revealed a number of s that can be used in the treatment of muscular dystrophy. Two main -based approaches that are used include:

  • Producing healthy muscle fibers

Scientists concluded the -based therapies are used to generate working muscle fibers. These working muscle fibers have the capacity to replace the damaged s and tissues of the body.

  • Reduce inflammation

The patients suffering from muscular dystrophy often complain about inflammation. This inflammation often speeds up the muscle degeneration process. Various -based therapies are used to reduce inflammation and eventually, slowing the disease’s progression.

We follow a specific SVF deployment protocol. The purpose is to utilize the potential Regen. properties of SVF. Contact our office to explore the possibility of -based therapies for Muscular dystrophy treatment. We offer in-person and video consultation as per the client’s location schedule.
