It's probably a case of osteogenesis imperfecta. Extreme safety is required. This condition usually improves as the child grows. Thick carpet in whole house is recommended. Anti skid tiles in bathroom. Gentle handling of child. Extra padded clothes, dipers. Give calcium and vitamin D supplements. Unfortunately there is no cure for this disease.

Any limb weakness present before surgery may take upto an year even after adequate surgical decompression. The duration and degree of recovery also depend on the time lag between onset of symptoms and the surgery. Expect a good recovery with regular physiotherapy.
