At Synergy Complex Care, we are passionate about empowering individuals with muscular dystrophy who require care.

We understand that navigating the world with a neuromuscular condition can be challenging, but our mission is to provide guidance, and tailored care solutions to help you maintain your independence and enhance your quality of life.

Understanding muscular dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy is a group of inherited genetic conditions that cause progressive muscle weakness and loss of muscle mass.

The severity and progression of the disease vary depending on the type of muscular dystrophy.

Each type of muscular dystrophy has unique features and characteristics, but all types affect muscle strength and function.

We ensure that our care plans are tailored to your specific needs and requirements, taking into account the type of muscular dystrophy and your individual circumstances.
