Your brother's wife has lumber spondiltis with few complications in the vertebral canal resulting compression of vertebrae and protrusion.there is also degenerative changes in the spinal canal and osteophytes formation causing more problems.
This can not be cured but further damage can be prevented by following .
Sleep on hard bed,
Do not bend forward
Avoid weight lifting
Do physiotherapy regularly, do back extension exercise.
Take more calcium and multivitamin supplements.
Xray and MRI should be done to evaluate the case.
consult orthopedic surgeon,surgical intervention may require.
