  1. Muscles get tightened up to cause pains but you didn’t say where the pain is so it’s hard to help out for each group of muscles requires a different release.

  2. Parkinson’s disease is a wicked cruel disease, my father in-law had it.

    You need to take your grandmother to her regular doctor, as they have a complete medical history, including medications she is on, and they can then find the right medication to suit her needs and that wont contradict-indicate any medication she is on.

    Tramadol is a prescription drug, and can cause dizziness, so her doctor will need to check your grandmothers suitability for this type of drug, especially if she has low blood pressure it may make her even weaker.

    Heat packs are excellent for helping with temporary relief of pain, but make sure they are wrapped in cloth (directly to the skin can cause burns on the elderly).

    Deep heat, tiger balm etc can help for little while, but only work topically.

    Massage may help, if using a good quality base oil and aromatherapy oil, such as Sandalwood, Lavender, Vetiver and Sweet marjoram, Chamomile and Juniper berry to name a few, are really good oils, but again you need to make sure they wont interact with her medication, or hurt her fragile skin, even if you massage her hands, feet and lower legs, it may help reduce some pain and tension.
