Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a group of inherited genetic conditions that cause muscles to weaken gradually. The damaged muscles become progressively weaker and the phenomenon leads to an increasing level of disability.

There are different types of muscular dystrophy. The symptoms of the most common type of muscular dystrophy begin in childhood, most commonly in boys while in other types of muscular dystrophies, symptoms don’t surface until adulthood.
