Brief Answer:
Could be arthritis or atorix related

Detailed Answer:

If this is been there for 10 years it should be properly investigated at this age. Was she? Do you have any reports or diagnosis?

It would be good if it is evaluated for calcium or mineral deficiency, arthritis or medication related pain.

You should see Orthopedic surgeon.. I usually recommend the following in such a scenario before referring to an Orthopedic surgeon for evaluation.
1) Calcium 500mg twice a day
2) Magnesium 200mg
3) CoQ 10 supplements once a day

Hope this helps.
