Brief Answer:
osteoarthritis

Detailed Answer:
hello,
I presume that she is suffering from osteoarthritis related to her age.
I suggest she can do hot fomentation with water, apply gel like diclofenac gel gently without rubbing much.
she can also use ayurvedic pain oils for massage.
apart from that natural medications like curcumin(haldi) extract can be used for pain.
I hope that is helpful.
