This is a classic knee pain problem been observed in women due to various reasons. It clould be due to low levels of calcium, hormonal changes in the body, post menopause effect in balance of hormones mainly estrogen and other degenerative changes.
To start with, you can ask your mother to do some exercises which might be helpful to decrease her knee pain,
1. Apply ice pack on the knee for 15 mins with her legs elevated upto 45 degrees (use 2-3 pillows)
2. Push knee down while sitting or lying in the bed, hold for 5 seconds and relax, do 10 times
3. Avoid sitting cross legged for certaiin days until pain goes down
4. Make her sit on a high raise bed and ask her to move her knee in circles like a pendulum, this will open the joint space in the knee and allow better range and movement for daily activities. Do this 20-25 times anticlockwise and clockwise, also back and forth
** Take regular medicines on time
** Drink milk and eat calcium rich food items.
