Your Personalized Treatment Plan

Do not limit your treatment options only to the nearest hospital.
We offer the most effective, quick and affordable treatment for myopathy,
thanks to the world’s largest hospital network.

Myopathy is a general term that refers to diseases that affect the muscles that connect to your bones (skeletal muscles). Myopathies may be passed on in families (inherited) or they may develop later in life (acquired). People living with myopathy may have difficulty performing activities of daily living like bathing, combing their hair or standing up from a chair.

Treatment of Myopathy

After determining your specific type of myopathy, your doctor will develop a treatment plan specific to your symptoms.

Most treatments include physical therapy, occupational therapy and some form of exercise. Other treatments are more specific and based on the type of myopathy.

In general, most acquired myopathies can be well controlled and treated to minimize weakness and symptoms. Some inherited myopathies have specific treatments that can stop the progression of the disease. At the present time, most inherited myopathies don’t have specific treatments, but people can benefit from physical therapy and certain types of exercise.

Inflammatory and autoimmune-related myopathies

The goal of treatment is to decrease inflammation and your body’s autoimmune response. These myopathies are often treated with:

  • Immunomodulatory/immunosuppressant drugs such as methotrexate, cyclosporine, tacrolimus, azathioprine, mycophenolate, rituximab and intravenous (IVIg) or subcutaneous (SubQIg) immunoglobulin.
  • Corticosteroids such as prednisone or methylprednisolone.

Inherited and genetic myopathies

Most inherited and genetic myopathies don’t have a specific treatment or cure. Management is largely based on symptom control and different forms of therapy. There are multiple ongoing clinical trials in various areas of research looking at treatments and gene therapy.

Duchenne muscular dystrophy and Pompe disease are disorders that can be treated with specific medication.

Other acquired myopathies

Healthcare providers manage acquired myopathies including endocrine, toxic and infectious myopathies by treating the underlying disease causing the myopathy. Toxin-related myopathies are treated by stopping the offending agent (alcohol or toluene, for example) or medication (statins, for example). Muscle symptoms that result from infections caused by bacteria, viruses or other infectious organisms are improved by treating the infection directly with antibiotics.
