Sports Taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area Contrast Fomentation (Hot and Cold). Contrast bath---It is a form of treatment knee is applied warm water followed by the immediate application of the knee with ice water. This procedure is repeated several times, alternating hot and cold. Note that the treatment should always end in the ice water, as heat will induce the body's inflammatory response, while cold helps to decrease inflammation.

You have to give her vitamin D (easily available in the market) and see that her overall nutritional support is good. Let her have a balanced diet. Your doctor might have already prescribed the necessary medications. You can also add milk and dairy products which are of low-fat nature. Regular medical checkup is also important to assess her general health. You can add Homeopathy also as it is very safe and beneficial in old age (to maintain good metabolism and immunity.) Call me if needed.
