Ans: Hello Biswajit,
I can understand your situation. Regular physiotherapy is very important for your mother.
You can also try some other alternate therapies like sujok, accupressure or some ayurvedic treatment.
With allopathy alternate therapies are very good to do to help manage the situation better and improve her quality of life.
All the best!
