DMD is one among the most common Muscular dystrophy. It is life threatening condition & shortens patient’s life substantially. DMD is characterized by progressive symmetrical muscular weakness that affects proximal muscles more than distal, often accompanied by calf muscle pseudo-hypertrophy. It affects every 1: 3600 live male births due to mutation in dystrophin gene. According to Ayurveda, this can be coincide under adibalapravruttavyadhi. The pathogenesis occur due to beejabhagadusti (hereditary) or garbhopaghatkarabhavas(sudden mutation). Vataas the prime dosha to cause neurological disorders, vitiates rasa, rakta, mamsa, jala, agni & oja and leads to gradual progression of muscle wasting, necrosis to systemic involvement.

Panchakarma has proven its space in the field of neuro-muscular conditions, and is most effectively practiced specially in children. So, this article is an attempt to understand the clinical background of the disease and propose an effective treatment plan that can control the progression of disease and improvise the life outcome & expectancy.
