Hello there.

I can understand your concern. 
Muscular dystrophy like this is genetic and has no cure. The disease worsens over the period of time.
How ever, you can try physiotherapy and exercise. 
And sometimes some orthopedicians can suggest for calipers also based on the condition.
But it has NO CURE.
best regards.
