Spina Bifida and lifting heavy weight

With out going into too much detail, my father-in-law and I have been two man lifting my mother-in law until recently when he became ill.

My 18 yr. old daughter has been steping in to help me lift when there is no one else to help me.

My question is "Should she be doing any heavy lifting since she was diagnosed with Spina Bifida by our Chiropractor. She is adjusted weekly. I fear for her safety in helping. None of us should be doing this with-out a lift, but there is no other choice at the moment.

The Achillotrain has a viscoelastic heel-wedge to raise the heel for relief of Achilles tendon. A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
