U need to get her X ray knee Jt. done to see whether age related osteoarthritis changes r there or not.It will also reveal any osteoporosis changes r there or not.Then consult any orthopedic surgeon.Cause of pain one is her wt.75 Kg n 2nd is her age. as this is weight bearing Jt. so joint space might have reduced.
