car accident, bottom 4 ribs detached from backbone

I am trying to help a 60 year old woman who was in an accident 4 weeks ago who has the bottom 4 ribs detached from her back bone. What can she do to promote healing and what can she do to improve her quality of life until they do.

Not opposed to home remedies that work. Thank you ahead of time for any direction you may provide.
