HI.. Looks like there is involvement of Intervertebral disc at multiple sites. These are age related changes. Nothing can be done for the same. Medications will give her temporary relief. The nerve compression in the spine has to be targetted. Instead of doing random exercises, I recommend you to go to a good physiotherapist for individually tailored exercises.
