Suggest treatment for sciatica Pain
Thanks for posting your query.
The symptoms that you have described are likely to be degenerative changes in her weight bearing joints due to osteoarthritis.
But it is advisable to rule out other causes also by taking a Xray of her knees hips and spine. Xray will help us to find out whether her bones are normal or not.
Other investigations needed are Serum B12 and Serum Vit D levels and start supplements according to the levels. For osteoarthritis, weight reduction is the main treatment along with medicines to decrease pain like NSAID's - paracetamol, aceclofenac etc., Life style modifications like avoiding sitting cross legged, squatting, using XXXXXXX type toilets will decrease the rate of progression of osteoarthritis. Exercises like quadriceps strengthening, swimming, straight leg raising will help in improving the muscle strength around the knee and will help in decreasing pain.
You can get the appropriate drugs prescribed from an orthopedician after examination and investigations.
I hope this answers your query.
