What Should You Know about Muscular Dystrophy?
Muscular dystrophies are a group of disorders that result in muscle weakness and a decrease in muscle mass over time. Some muscular dystrophies are not identified until a child is 3 to 6 years of age, but can be diagnosed earlier. To help a child with muscular dystrophy reach his or her full potential, it is very important to get help as early as possible. Acting early can make a real difference!
