This study aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of rehabilitation in patients with limb-girdle disease, who were given a home exercise program and called for follow-up in certain periods by observing the functional areas of the shoulder and pelvic groups every six months. Suitable statistical methods were conducted. Descriptive findings and continuous variables regarding the patients were presented. As a result of the analyses, no statistically significant difference was found only in pre-treatment and post-treatment wrist strength and trunk extension variables, but a statistically significant difference was found between the pre-treatment and post-treatment scores of all other types of strength. Significant differences were found between the pre-treatment and post-treatment cervical flexion strength in terms of general weakness and inability to walk, joint limitation and walking status. It is believed that the rehabilitation method to be applied to patients with limb-girdle muscular dystrophy (LGMD) detected in the early period will provide effective results and may form the basis for referring them to physicians and health professionals. It has been concluded that rehabilitation will help them lead a comfortable life.
