Muscular Dystrophy Support Centre

About

Muscular Dystrophy Support Centre is on a mission to transform access to specialised therapies for people living with muscular dystrophy (MD) and related neuro-muscular conditions in the Midlands!

MD Support Centre was established as a charity in 2012 to provide provide long-term, regular physical therapies specifically for adults with muscle-wasting diseases – and we are one of just two organisations nationwide to do so. We operate from our HQ in Coventry and also run local satellite clinics in Birmingham, Leicester and Tipton.

MD is a rare condition with over 60 types and subtypes. It is life-long and can be life-limiting. It affects 70,000 people in the UK and often people have not heard of it before it affects their family. Our specialised therapies are focused on providing longer-term ongoing support for people with MD to actively manage their condition and stay independent.
