Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day. Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the knee against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.

Hello there.... Following these steps will help..... Protect the knee injury from further damage. Where applicable, use of a knee support is recommended..... The topical application of ice or cold therapy to the area of the knee swelling can help in reducing the symptoms of pain and inflammation.... The use of a compression support or compression bandages to the knee can can help reduce swelling.... Consult orthopedician for further advice.....

Looking at age of your mother Probably the Knee pain is because of Arthritis (can be OsteoArthrits). Good Suggestion would depend upon what is your primary purpose of the consultation . i.e. if She wants to be completely independent and do all her work by slef. SHE MAY UNDERGO A REHAB PROGRAM FOCUSING ON INCREASING THE STRENGTH OF THE MUSCLES which will allow her Knee's to function properly. Secondly, if the Bone Density is Good and hopefully she is ready to go for Surgery. then Post little bit of Strengthening she may opt for JOINT ARTHROPLASTY. Thirdly, If She Neither wants to work out her knee muscle's and Nor does want to opt for surgery, and she is comfortable in using Wheelchair. then we may teach her wheelchair skills. But, If she does not want to be independent . train a helper for all her needs.
Next Steps
Consult a good Physio / Occupational Therapist Near by your Place.
Health Tips
Ask what your mother which alternative is she comfortable with and continue with that.STAY HEALTHY
