The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) sponsors a monthly clinic that provides comprehensive medical services to patients with certain neuromuscular diseases, including muscular dystrophy and other inherited nerve and muscle diseases, like spinal muscular atrophy.
Patients who participate in the MDA clinic will receive a neurological examination, appropriate testing necessary to achieve diagnosis, physical therapy assessments and follow-up care from our neuromuscular specialists.
Once a patient is affiliated with the MDA, a patient is eligible for direct services that may include the purchase and repair of wheelchairs and braces, recreation at an MDA summer camp and selected transportation needs.
Pediatric Muscular Dystrophy Association Clinic
Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist also has a pediatric specialty clinic for MDA. Many of our providers work with adult and pediatric patients at both clinics.
