Give ergonomic advice to prevent falls and also train for balance.. prone lying if comfortable is best to counteract the effects of continuous flexion on the body...

No aggressive physiotherapy as bone quality is low Go for mild straightening of thoracic spine exercises along with thoracic mobility and upper limb strength evaluation and exercises. Ergonomic advice to be given and thoracic back support to keep the spine in neutral while sitting.
