Becker Muscular Dystrophy is an inherited form of muscular dystrophy that weakens the leg muscles. Becker Muscular Dystrophy is less common than other forms of muscular dystrophy, but is most likely to occur in boys. The symptoms of Becker Muscular Dystrophy usually appear between the ages of 5 and 15 and slowly worsen. Becker Muscular Dystrophy has symptoms that include difficulty walking, frequent falls, and fatigue and around age 25, the person usually loses the ability to walk. There is no cure for Becker Muscular Dystrophy, but physical therapy and exercise is used to help preserve muscle strength. The life expectancy of someone affected with Becker Muscular Dystrophy is usually decreased because of the onset of heart and breathing problems.
