Muscular dystrophy is the term used to refer to over 30 different congenital conditions, all of which may result in muscle tissue depletion and muscular atrophy. The condition is also known to worsen over time, as each individual condition progresses interminably. Most treatment options for muscular dystrophy involve reducing discomfort and improving the quality of life as much as possible.
Patients with muscular dystrophy may benefit from the pain management properties of marijuana. If approved for use by a doctor, marijuana may help improve the patient’s quality of life significantly.
