Hi Amansran.n

Firstly describing about arthritis there are many types , such as osteo arthritis , rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis. And the medication for each of these will differ.

Hence i suggest you to get a few basic tests done, to determine the type of arthritis -

1) RA factor
2) CRP ( c- reactive protein ) and ESR
3) X-RAY of both the knees
4) CBP

Following this your mother will be started on medication
Also let her take up muscle strengthening exercises or attend yoga classes for a better quality of life

Hope your question was answered satisfactorily
