What precautions to take to recover soon from IVDP ?

Hi, my sister has been suffering from IVDP. She is 25 years old. she is in allopathy treatment for about a month along with the physiotherapy . she has recovered almost 70% from it, but she has to travel daily around 90 kms(in total) for her office in a traveller wagon, which is hampering her recoevry. Can i have the advice for her and the list of precautions which she can take to recover soon. Thanks

hi,
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.
I find this answer helpful
