Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
The pain in her legs and shoulder are due to osteoarthritis. She can do hot fomentation, apply local muscle relaxant ointment and take an oral pain killer along with a muscle relaxant for relief. If there is no relief, try consulting an orthopaedician.

Dear Joseph,thanks for choosing health care magic.As the age advances the wear and tear in bones increase and gives rise to this kind of pain.As she is 78 years old please do not try much with analgesics that is available readily without being prescribed by your doctor.Give her calcium rich foods like green vegetables,black dal,milk and milk products on regular basis along with oral calcium tablets as should also look for some chemical imbalances like uric acid etc.which may be adding to the problem.Talk to your doctor and seek help.
