Duchenne muscular dystrophy is the most common form of myodystrophy characterized by muscle weakness and atrophy and a progressive course due to progressive muscle fiber degeneration. Until now, this disease is regarded as incurable. Patients receive only maintenance therapy aimed at improving the quality of life and preventing complications. The article considers the most relevant methods used in the rehabilitation of children with this pathology. It reviews an update on the impact of physical exercises on dystrophin-deficient muscles. Particular emphasis is placed on the need for further investigations to elaborate specific recommendations for medical staff, patients and their families.
