It is important to keep your mother active. She needs to keep motion in all her joints, water activites are good for this since it is not putting pressure on the joints. If any activity causes pain she needs to stop. Yoga is also a good form of activity. Ice is good to reduce swelling also. Consult her primary care doctor before trying these activities.

Hello there..
welcome to healthcare magic forum..
RA is a chronic inflammatory disorder requiring long term medications for relief of symptoms. I would advice go to one doctor and have a regular follow up instated of changing doctors frequently. Search for rheumatologist in your area and discuss with them about further management of your mothers condition.
Hope this helps.
Take care..
