Hello,

What it appears to me that the best solution is to undergo a physical therapy session for a few days and later reduce the number of sessions.

Post which you can learn the exercises needs to be performed in regular basis to improve the lifestyle and avoid injuring the major joints like knee, hip, spine etc.

As in myopathy , there is more of secondary changes in body and pain arises. So one needs to focus of strengthening the muscles which are weak and also correct the posture to the optimum for avoiding injuries.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
