Your mother is probably suffering from spondylitic changes in the spine and may also have a slipped disc causing nerve root compression hence giving rise to pain and numbness in the arm. She needs to be examined thoroughly and investigated primarily with an X ray and probably am MRI. Once diagnosed and confirmed a more targeted treatment cam be prescribed.
