Becker United is a web based group setup by and for people with Becker Muscular Dystrophy to provide a means for us to talk to each other to share ideas,experiences and help to break the isolation we can all feel. .
If you or a member of your family has BMD or you are carer of someone with BMD we invite you to join with us in helping each other.All of us have something to contribute even if that is just being part of the group and membership is free.We support and work with the Muscular Dystrophy campaign and the NeuroMuscular Centre working together to support people affected by Muscular Dystrophy.We all have had questions, worries and concerns some of which we hope to answer through these pages or if not then we hope to direct you in the right direction.

I think it important to maintain what strength you already have ,excercise in moderation and physiotherapy are of great benefit. So here’s a plug for where I get my Physiotherapy. This a place where I can go and talk to others with Becker Muscular Dystrophy receiving treatment as well as myself.
The Neuromuscular Centre situated in Winsford Cheshire is for everyone within the region directly or indirectly affected by Muscular Dystrophy, there is a full physiotherapy service available by appointment. They have a team of Chartered Physiotherapists who specialise in the management of neuromuscular conditions.
