Connect with the Experts: Pain Management (August 2022)

Many people with Duchenne experience pain every day that is often left untreated, or undertreated. Understanding the types of pain, what medications can be safely given, alternative measures of pain relief, and how to discuss it with your neuromuscular team are just a few key points in managing pain in Duchenne.

During our community webinar on August 2, 2022 on pain management, PPMD was joined by a panel of experts to discuss these topics and various treatment options.
