Thanks for your query.

Knee pains in this age are usually due to Osteoporosis.

Giving them Calcium supplements with Physiotherapy would be effective in reducing the pain.

For temporary relief they can take pain killers like diclofenac or aceclofenac.

If the above remedies fail, then Intraarticular steroids would surely help them.

For severe pains, allopathic medications are better than else.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
