What is muscle disease (Dystrophy)?

In the medical language, muscle diseases are called muscular
dystrophy. The word dystrophy is derived from the combination of the
ancient Greek words tooth, which means bad, sickly, and trophy, which means
nutrition, development. There is no cure for muscular dystrophies. But
medications and therapies can help manage symptoms and slow the course of the
disease. How muscular dystrophy will affect you or your child depends on
the type. Most people’s conditions worsen over time, and some people may
lose the ability to walk, speak, or look after themselves. However, this
does not happen to everyone. Some people with muscle disease may live with
mild symptoms for years.

Electromyography or EMG

Small needles called electrodes are placed in different parts of the body and the patient is asked
to slowly stretch or relax their muscles. Electrodes are connected by
wires to a machine that measures electrical activity.

Muscle biopsy: A small piece of muscle tissue is removed
using a needle. This piece is examined in a lab to determine which
proteins are missing or damaged. This test can show the type of muscular
dystrophy. Muscle strength, reflexes and coordination tests: These tests
help doctors rule out other diseases related to the nervous system. Electrocardiogram
or EKG: Measures the electrical signals from the heart and determines how fast
the heart is beating and whether it has a healthy rhythm. Other imaging
techniques: Imaging methods such as MRI and ultrasound can be used for the
diagnosis of muscle diseases. Blood test: Doctors also He or she may
