hi rekha

thanks for writing to HCM.

your mother's problem can be related to soft tissue inflammation usually at this age shoulder joint capsule (covering layer over the shoulder joint) can be inflammed if her shoulder movements are also restricted then this can be ADHESIVE CAPSULITIS.

Also go for blood sugar test if it is raised then address the issue with your physician.

for the shoulder problem i would suggest you to take help of a physiotherapist nearby you.

He/She can provide your mother with some pain relieving treatment, shoulder mobilizations and some home exercises which will definitely help.

i hope this helps

take good care of your mother..

good wishes!!

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Cold compress and passive physiotherapy can help in the acute stage
Warm compress and active physiotherapy, later.
Beware! - many of such people end up with frozen shoulder...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
