General Surgeon 's  Response
it is better to consult and get checked by orthopedic surgeon
few investigations may be required and proper diagnosis is essential for best treatment
if your mother has some other gynecological problems along with back ache she should consult gynecologist also
if over weight should try to reduce weight
hope your mother be all right soon

Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
At her age the back pain may be due to a disc prolapse or due to some spinal problem which can best be diagnosed by an orthopaedician.Get her X-ray spine done for proper diagnosis and treatment.These age related degenerative changes do need permanent treatment.

Dear Bhupendra, Welcome to Healthcaremagic!
Backache is a very common problem & OTC topical creams you used will give only temporary relief. There may be a number of causes like osteoporosis, gynecological causes, intervertebral disc prolapse, changes due to age, postural defects etc. Best course of action is to consult an orthopaedic surgeon ASAP. Good luck.
