1. Physical therapy: Physical therapy can help maintain muscle strength and flexibility, as well as improve posture and balance.
2. Assistive devices: Assistive devices such as braces, canes, and walkers can help improve mobility and reduce the risk of falls.
3. Medications: Medications such as ACE inhibitors, beta-blockers, and statins can help reduce the risk of heart problems associated with Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy.
4. Surgery: Surgery may be recommended to correct joint deformities or to implant a pacemaker to help regulate the heart rate.
5. Gene therapy: Gene therapy is a promising new treatment option for Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy. It involves introducing a healthy copy of the gene responsible for the disorder into the body.
