Muscular dystrophy and related conditions cause muscles to waste and weaken. More than 70,000 people in the UK are affected

Types of conditions

There are many different types of muscular dystrophy, and each affects different muscles. The severity of conditions and how they affect individuals varies greatly from person to person. Most conditions are progressive, causing the muscles gradually to weaken over time, and can either be inherited or occur out of the blue where there is no family history.
