Thanks for writing to us.
Your mother is suffering from a chronic slowly progressive disease of joints. She needs life long pain killers for relief. Hot fomentation of the affected joints will help her. The exercises will best be explained by a physiotherapist according to the joints that are involved.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
