Please submit only sites relating to muscular dystrophy to this category. If you represent an organization, please make sure the site is not already listed before you submit your organization.The musculary dystrophies are a group of diseases characterized by progressive degeneration and/or loss of muscle fibers that result in loss of muscle strength. All or nearly all of them have a hereditary origin but details of the type of genetic defect and of the prognosis for the disease vary from type to type. Duchenne muscular dystrophy is the most common form, though there are at least 6 other forms of the disease. Several million people throughout the world have a form of muscular dystrophy. In the United States, it is estimated that 250,000 suffer from a form of muscular dystrophy.
Please submit only sites which pertain to Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome (R.S.D.S.) or Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (C.R.P.S).Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome (R.S.D./R.S.D.S), more recently known as Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (C.R.P.S.) is a disease brought on by damage or trauma to the Sympathetic Nervous System. It can be brought on by an accident, minor trauma, or surgery (i.e.,carpal tunnel surgery, disc herniation surgery, removal of neuroma, rib resection, tarsal tunnel surgery, ulnar nerve surgery, etc.)
Submit only English language sites about Spinal Muscular Atrophy to this area.Spinal muscular atrophy is a term for a group of inherited neuromuscular diseases. All forms of the disease affect specialized nerve cells called motor neurons, which control the movement of voluntary muscles. SMA causes lower motor neurons in the base of the brain and the spinal cord to disintegrate, preventing them from delivering electrical and chemical signals that muscles depend on for normal function.
Non English sites should be submitted to a World category instead.
