Muscular dystrophy is an umbrella term used to characterize a number of disorders related to progressive muscle mass loss and strength loss. It can happen as early as infancy, or up to middle age or even later. Stem Cell Centers treatments may help with symptoms associated with muscular dystrophy.
The face, arm, leg, spine or heart muscles are all vulnerable to muscular dystrophy. Because of muscle mass loss and weakness, these muscles face many physical limitations or lose ability to function altogether. This may also lead to shortened life span.
There are no environmental factors that can increase your risk of developing muscular dystrophy. All forms of muscular dystrophy are caused by genetic mutations, so those with certain genetic factors are at the highest risk.
I couldn't walk through the Seattle airport, it's a long walk between terminals and I had to ask for wheelchair assistance and that was pretty traumatic for me. What is wrong with me that I can'e even walk that distance. So just to be able to move is an incredible thing. I had the injection directly in my knee, the injection is not a big deal. I think after a couple of months I could see enough improvement that I thought it would be helpful to do this again simply because I was having hip pain and neck pain also on that right side. So it was just really a good choice for me and I am so glad I did, it's really made a difference. I would definitely recommend it.
“What a difference the treatment made in 4 weeks! Things that we used to enjoy, we can do again. Balance is better, can walk better – with more energy, vitality, spunk and enthusiasm. We both have so much more freedom and movement without joints hurting and the intense pain. It’s a new life!“
