Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 8 months ago.

Following measures can help her, apart from her medications;

1) Ice compresses or warm if she prefers.

2) Local analgesic spray.

3) Frequent elevation.

4) Electrical stimulation; this is a small device for pain relief. This can be obtained from physical therapy center or one can buy it at health stores.
