hi.. you should consult with an experienced orthopedic doctor rather then any physiotherapist. Most the senior citizens face this issue in that age.

Sorry to hear about your mother's problem. I know these type of pains broke people physically as well as mentally. But the best advice for you to find a good doctor for the treatment. You need to find an expert who can understand the actual cause of the pain your mother is suffering from.

Your sleeping position depends on back pain while sleeping. If you sleep on your back, try placing a pillow under your knees while you snooze. This will allow for proper alignment of the spine. If you sleep on your stomach, a pillow under your lower abdomen can help, while those who sleep on their side should tuck the pillow between their knees.

Try a New Mattress.
Your bed may be to blame for your aching back. In fact, 63 percent of people say that their back pain improved after switching to a new mattress. Look for a medium-firm or firm mattress (the super cushy ones may feel great at first, but they are not back-friendly). Many companies allow you to test drive a mattress for a few weeks before you’re obligated to keep it, which is a good method for finding one that works for you. If a new mattress isn’t in the cards, adding plywood supports under the mattress may help.

Sorry to hear about your mother back pain. Ask her to do some exercise to get rid of back pain and also ask her GP to give some medicine.

I have some tips that may be helpful.

Use a small flat pillow for the head. If the pillow may lift head high then it can cause neck and back pain.
Use back bollard cushion which is round, firm, tabular and little wider to fits your back while sitting.
Always wear flat shoes than high heels as they can be horrible for the back.
Walk as possible as in the morning time with fresh air.

I suggest speaking to your GP as an xray may be required just to rule out anything untoward

As of my personal experience, I would say it is a vague practice to figure out the possible reason for pain without consulting a GP. You should ponder before taking advice. I am not in favor of doing any exercise before the diagnosis of the root cause as it can increase the pain if got the wrong way.

This can be occurred due to improper posture during sleep. It is advisable for your mother to use proper mattress and pillow and also to take care on sleeping posture. Apart from this some times due to long term nervous disorder back pain can be developed. So it is recommended to go for a doctor's visit and start thorough treatment.
