Becker Muscular Dystrophy

Sergii is 19 years old. Diagnosis: Becker Muscular Dystrophy.

Sergii's muscular dystrophy began to appear at the age of 10 years. The disease began with general physical weakness. Especially weakness was manifested in physical education classes. Then Sergii began to notice that he was squatting not in the same way as his classmates. Classmates sat down gently, and Sergii fell on his haunches and held his hand so as not to fall. The boy could not stand up without the help of his hands.

The young man began to notice that weakness was symmetrical in both legs. When Sergii’s parents turned to doctors about his son’s weakness, they noted that the calf muscles are very indurated and voluminous, looks most like bottles. This state of the calf muscles is called Pseudohypertrophy.

Sergii began to show a progressive lumbar lordosis, which progressed over the years more and more, "duck" way of walking appeared.

For uprise from the floor, Sergii got up, pulling himself up on his hands. He stopped running, because he stumbled all the time, and his muscle weakness increased so much that he had to stop running after a few steps.

With such problems Sergey appealed to me, Nikonov Nikolai Borysovych, with a request to teach his parents to influence his muscles so that they began to work better.


Sergii and his parents knew that complete immobilization could occur as early as 25 years.

Life expectancy for patients with Becker muscular dystrophy is 40 years. But if the clinical manifestations of Myodystrophy begin to manifest at 30 years, the mobility of patients persists even up to 60 years. So it was with one of my patients who appealed to me at the age of 60 in a semi-moving state. After carrying out the treatment sessions according to my method, Emine, that is the name of the patient, began to uprise freely from the floor without using her hands, and, rather quickly walk upstairs to the 17th floor without using her hands and without interruption to rest. For details of the Emine’s recover, see the video:

Sergii had an elevated serum creatine phosphokinase concentration and Myoglobinuria. Since it is difficult to distinguish Becker Myodystrophy from Duchenne Myodystrophy, maintaining the strength of the neck flexor muscles allows us to differentiate diagnoses.

Sergii has remain the strength of the neck flexor muscles - he has Becker Muscular Dystrophy, while Emine, Nastya and Jacob, my patients, had adynamic neck muscles.

Becker Muscular Dystrophy is due to the fact that the gene producing the dystrophin protein is damaged. Dystrophin is produced, but in other configurations. Dystrophin protein is the largest protein in the muscle cell. He makes the frame of the cell so that it is hollow inside. The frame of the muscle cell consists of a dystrophin protein and resembles a metal grid with holes. Through these holes, nutrients enter the cell and the wastes remove. Since the dystrophin mesh is not one-piece like a brick wall, this mesh can expand and contract. The two motor proteins within this framework, actin and myosin, expand and contract the mesh. Actin and myosin can move if give them energy. The energy of motor proteins comes from mitochondria.

When I looked under an electron microscope at the structure of the muscle cell with Becker myodystrophy, I saw that inside the muscle cell mitochondria are located not near the motor proteins, but near the periphery of the cell. I also saw that there are a lot of fatty inclusions inside the muscle cell. This means that these fatty inclusions have removed mitochondria from it workplaces and motor proteins cannot work.

If you influence the muscles by my method, I wondered if the amount of fat deposits would decrease? If the amount of fat deposits decreases, then is it possible to return the mitochondria back to motor proteins?


As a result of the influence the muscles by my method, Sergey began to develop Strength in the muscles. He began to walk confidently with his arms down, he began to walk at full foot, he began to move in space as an ordinary person.

Sergii’s recovery process

The beginning of treatment sessions for the recover of Sergii’s muscle movement

The most difficult is the beginning of the treatment sessions. The first sessions with Sergii were assisted by: me, Sergii's parents, my wife, Nykonova Liliia Oleksandrivna, our son Stepan (10 years old) and Sergii’s sister (10 years old). Our younger assistants were responsible for fixing Sergii's legs. The task for both of them was doable.

In this article, I express my gratitude to my wife Nykonova Liliia Oleksandrivna and my little assistants, who voluntarily helped me to recover the movements of Sergii's muscles.

If you constantly maintain the state of the muscles that Sergii has become, then his life expectancy will be like that of an ordinary person, even with the diagnosis of Becker Muscular Dystrophy. I am proud of my knowledge, skills and results.
