Dear friend, your mom probably is suffering from a common illness called osteoarthritis.The treatment depends on the severity of the disease.To know the severity i would have to know a few more details. Or it is better to consult a doctor in person.Anyway few tips that would help 1) Weight reduction exrcises that do not strain your knees eg.swimming (best) or cycling. pls keep in mind no too much walking or jogging 2) hot fomentation to both knees three times daily 3) quadriceps strengthening exercise (pls refer internet for the exercises) 4) Physiotherapy if possible from a qualified physiotherapist. 5) A good diabetes, hypertension, anemia and thyroid disease control. (if she has any) 6) Healthy diet rich in proteins and vitamins 7) vitamin supplements if required. hope this helps. If you wish kindly consult me privately or consulting a doctor in person is better. regards.
