In brief: Usually not
There are some experimental compounds that may prevent or delay atrophy in muscular dystrophy but nothing that uasually brings back muscles that have atrophied already.
One should discuss preventative measures as well as possible treatmenst with a neuromuscular neurologist.

Muscular dystrophy is a progressive degenerative muscular disorder, the muscles progressively become atrophied and lose their function, the worst group is respiratory and cardiac one.
