Has she tried any physiotherapy yet?
Has she been checked for rheumatoid arthritis for her progressive joint deformities?
Has she been checked for vitamin B12 deficiency as the possible cause neuropathy?

This is important --given her digestive system problem, she should be checked for vitamin B12 deficiency.
The symptoms may improve with vitamin B12 weekly injections.
Also herniated disc at the neck can cause pinched nerve.
Hence, physiotherapy should be started.
This will help with the strengthening of the muscles and also improving the functionality.
would chiropractic treatment help?
yes that also may help.
Chiropractor can be able to adjust the vertebral misalignment.
But this can also cause nerve damage in some cases if not done properly.
Hence, a neck MRI scan should be considered to assess for the cervical spine disease.
