Hello ,
As you described that your sis has hair line fracture in pelvis and she is unable to move, here I advice you that she will definitely move on her legs,but she have to take complete bed rest for 6 weeks minimum and along with rest she have to take CALCIUM +D3 regularly and analgesic+anti inflammatory medication.
Good luck and take care.
