Osteoporosis is a condition in which there is a decrease in bone density which leads to affection of quality and mass of bones. It can also results in frequent fractures although hip fracture is not usually noticed until there is a fall. Observe the patient while walking, sitting also in different postures weather there is pelvic imbalance or unusual spinal curve (which can also lead to pain) Consult a physiotherapist nearby for proper guidance after proper assessment of patient physio will guide you significantly Further postural correction is quite necessary along with strengthening exercises (gently in start) of legs also focus in core muscle strengthening. Keep an eye on hip muscles (gluteals) strengthening of gluteals are very important. After the strengthening programme you can also go with some balancing activities and so on. All the best Regards Ankita choudhary (PT)

She is 60 so osteoporosis is common in this age she just need proper diet and milk intake with calcium and vitamin intake. For pain in back or sanctum area she needs sacral mobilisation to treat the sacroiliac dysfunction and back exercises to maintain that correct posture.

Apply Hot Fomentation twice daily. Avoid bending in front. Postural Correction- Sit Tall, Walk Tall. Extension Exercises x 15 times x twice daily - lying on tummy, take left arm up for 3 seconds, then bring it down, right arm up for 3 seconds, bring down. Bring right leg up, hold for 3 seconds, bring it down. Then right leg up and hold for 3 seconds and bring it down. Repeat twice a day- 10 times. Bhujang Asana -- Lie flat on your stomach, keeping the palms out, bend the neck backward, take a deep breath and while holding it for 6 seconds, raise the chest up. Release breath and relax your body. Repeat the exercise 15 times twice daily. Core Strengthening Exercises- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Its unfortunate that she is in pain.
We need a detailed history, clinical examination and a couple of tests to find out exactly whats going on.
She can take a calcium and vitamin d3 supplement but i would suggest you take her to a orthopedician in person for further evaluation and management. 
Best regards.
Dr. Anil kumar jain.
Bangalore.
