What is Muscle Dystrophy?
Muscular Atrophy/dystrophy (MD) is a group of muscle diseases that results in increasing weakening and breakdown of skeletal muscles over time.
The disorders differ in which muscles are primarily affected, the degree of weakness, how fast they worsen, and when symptoms begin. Many people will eventually become unable to walk with this condition.
Horse Therapy For Muscle Dystrophy
Riding horses improves muscle tone, coordination and walking habits to people with muscular Atrophy/dystrophy.
It helps to repair and rebuild the muscles and stop the muscle atrophy from deteriorating.
