It was remarked by Wendy King, a physical therapist in the neurology department at Ohio State University that the chances of scoliosis and the magnitude of curvature are reduced considerably with daily administration of steroids. King also remarked that calcium supplements and bone mineral density must be indicated to patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy are recommended at intervals of six to twenty four months due to implications associated with steroids.

Wendy King, a physical therapist in the neurology department at Ohio State University, remarked that the risk of scoliosis along with the degree of curvature gets sharply reduced with daily doses of corticosteroids.

King remarked that this study is the first to look at the long-term impact of the drugs against previous studies that merely showed that corticosteroids can improve strength and function in boys with X-linked recessive ailment.

The study also suggested that patients with Duchenne MD must be prescribed calcium supplements and provided with regular bone density examinations at intervals of six months to twenty four months because of the orthopedic implications of usage of steroids.
