hi,welcome to health care magic,your mother in law symptoms suggests radiating pain to arm which could be due to back problem.i will advice you to go for some investigations like x-ray,MRI etc to diagnose the problem.
going for accupuncture without diagnosis will not be a permanent solution.
consult your doctor and a physio.
