Actually I need more history details about her age ! What was the treatment done by the surgeon? Had she a MRI ?I am suspecting a lumber disc lesion ..
Can she move her legs? Even with pain?
Also try sending the rest of the reports and prescriptions
I am expecting your answer soon

The condition you are referring to is called spondylolisthesis , which honestly I do not see in the x ray, I recommend an MRI as I suspect disk protrusion at L5/S1
Until then I advise wearing a back brace and staying on anti inflammatory next step will be physical therapy
Good Luck

there is no displacement of any bones but she seems to be having a slipped disc at L4-5 level due to lifting heavy weight.
Physiotherapy in the form of lumbar / leg traction,short wave diathermy,LASER therapy will help.
She should avoid lifting heavy weight,avoid bending forward.
Using lumbosacral belt for spine support and analgesic / pregabalin,methycobalamin tablets will be helpful.

I think you need to do MRI…
