Hi thanks for the query.
From the complaints you had described she must be bit obese, and some changes of wear and tear changes in the spine and hip bones. The complaints mostly are seen in elderly and obese personalities. Firstly I would suggest you to motivate her in getting and make her walk. Next provide her with walking aid either an elbow crutch or an walker and attach a physiotherapist who could make her walk. Consult your local orthopaedic doctor who can advice regarding basic analgesics and calcium supplements.
