usually, these types of injuries just require time I heal and what you are doing is generally enough. they rarely cause any permanent injury. however, if it is really not getting better at all, or if it seems to be getting worse, she ahould see a doctor. the general rule of thumb is that if it seems to be getting better every day, even if it takes a few weeks, it should be fine, but if if is not improving, she should be seen. also, if the pain is severe enough that she is having difficulty doing her usual tasks, are should also be seen. I hope this helps, please let me know if you need any more information.
