initially she might have to rest for a month or so.
here are a few precautions:
ask her to wear a lumbar belt while travelling.
avoid bending.
if her job demands standing for long ask her to place one leg on a stool.
chair should be ergonomically constructed to meet her spinal curves.
while getting up from lying position turn on one side and get up.
let me know if this was helpful.
