Hello anonymous.
Your mother seems to be suffering from Osteoarthritis and possibly Osteoporosis as well. What you could do is encourage physiotherapy in various sorts to help regain the muscle power. And that my friend is the only long lasting solution. Otherwise she could take anti inflammatory medicines(not recomended over a long period), local ultrasonics/swd, visco supplements for knees, and eventually joint replacements. Do advice her on keeping healthy diet consisting of leafy vegetables, milk n milk products and fruits.
Mail me her status on for more info
