Neuromuscular Management Overview
In Duchenne, skeletal muscles will gradually get weaker because they do not have dystrophin. You should have regular checkups with a neuromuscular specialist (NMS) familiar with Duchenne. The NMS understands the progression of muscle weakness and can help you and your family prepare for the next step in care. It is important for the NMS to know how your muscles are working so that they can start the right therapies as early as possible.
