Hello Mrs. Norman, Sorry about this diagnosis. You have to follow the advice of Orthopedic specialist on this as the condition can progress if care is not exercised. Please ask her to take a break for the present and try to reverse the condition of cartilage.

This is especially needed if she has pain while climbing stairs, or sitting with bent knees. If neglected she may end up with a surgical procedure.
