Hi. My mom had kyphoplasty done January 2018. The horrible pain she had was gone immediately. Her concern is that she is not straightening up when she walks and is beginning to stoop over. She would like to know if anyone has had this issue and if there is anything she can do to help her posture. Thanks so much. Izzy

Re: Kyphoplasty

Welcome to the board. Iím sorry no one responded sooner. I donít have any personal experience with kyphoplasty...but have plenty of experience with spine surgeries. Does your mom have osteoporosis?

I would think that it would be helpful for your mom to work on strengthening the back and core muscles, especially if she could find someone to work with who is knowledgeable about orthopedic issues. There are specific exercises she could be doing to improve structural alignment and posture.
