Hi. Thank you for the question. Your Mom's age is 58 years which is common to get osteoarthritis. If she is overweight than it could explain back and knee pain together. But the good thing is she can overcome this pain with exercise and gradually she can work on her nutrition to control weight. If you need my help in formulating a exercise program for her please write back to me.
