Therapies for EDMD

Therapies for EDMD do exist, however they are only for treating some of the effects of the disease and do not currently exist to “treat” the disease itself.


Some of these therapies include surgeries for some of the contractures or daily therapies for lengthening the muscle fibers to slow the contracture rate. See our pages on each for more information on these therapies as they exist today.
