Honestly a forum is not the place for such a question, this is why the physio is a physio. If the physio says rest then it's likely that they mean in.
The only thing that might help is water walking in a warm pool, but once again, ask the physio.

As a past physio, how do u spot a sports physio from just a "physio"? Is it the name on the door? [WINKING FACE]
U probably need to provide a lot more info about your partners issue if u want any reasonable answers. The main info just to start would be:
How did the initial injury occur? Was it bike related?
What is the current (specific) diagnosis? If the physio diagnosis is "some sort of hip socket thing" then u need someone more knowledgable on the case...
What are the aggravating/easing factors with the injury?
What's her past exercise/bike history?
Has she had a reputable bike fit?
Start with those questions and the wealth of professional knowledge on this forum might be able to assist u with some relevant advice. None of this will replace seeing a GOOD practitioner in person, but it may assist u in identifying the factors and questions to ask/consider to identify who useful the practitioner is u are seeing...
