Becker United was originally a group setup by and for people with Becker Muscular Dystrophy .
I got married in August 2015 and my mother is now in a care home and since then I have had little if any time to spend on the Becker United web site .
Becker United still continues to operate but only as a Website with links to information and contains Members stories of living life with BMD etc.
Facebook provides a means to speak to others with BMD in a more efficient way than Becker United.If you wish to contact others with Becker MD I suggest using Facebook.There are at least 2 groups setup on Facebook,some of you out there have been busy and started your own Becker Group on Facebook .
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.
The Neurmuscular Centre Midlands provides services and support for those with Muscular Dystrophy and other muscle wasting disease in Midlands region.Correct physiopherapy is essential to maintain mobility and reduce the rate of muscle deterioration.
