Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a common neuromuscular disorder occurring in approximately 1 in 5000 live male births [1] and caused by a mutation on the dystrophin gene located on the X chromosome [2]. The dystrophin gene encodes the protein dystrophin, which is essential to healthy muscle growth and functioning. In its absence, muscles deteriorate and break down [3]. Health and functioning are subsequently compromised. Mobility becomes progressively more difficult with increased risk of musculoskeletal deformity [4].
