A proper physical evaluation would be necessary to find out the actual cause of her problem.Shoulder pain is just the symptom.The actual cause needs to be identified and treated.Also you haven't mentioned if she is diabetic,since it can be a major cause leading to peri arthritis of shoulder
Visit a Physio soon
Don't ignore the problem,it may happen that the pain will subside,
