Default Client with possible MD

I was wondering if anyone had any experience or advice working with someone who has muscular dystrophy? One of my clients has been having increasing bouts of episodic loss of of coordination and strength. At first, his doctors thought that there was some neural impingement causing the symptoms, but that has been ruled out and they now are testing for MD. Blood work has shown highly elevated levels of creatine kinase.

He has been cleared to continue to exercise, but at moderate intensity. We have made sure that he doesn't go too hard, and on the days his coordination isn't there, we just work on mobility stuff.

I'm going to do some more research on it when I get a spare moment, but any advice would be appreciated!
