Are there any medicines or therapies to cure or alleviate the disease?

There is currently no available cure for LAMA2-CMD but there are existing treatments and therapies to help alleviate the symptoms. Physiotherapy can help prevent muscle contractures, and a specific exercise programme should be led by a physiotherapist as early as possible. Often, surgery may be required to help release the contractures.
