Brief Answer:
further evaluation needed...

Detailed Answer:
Hello and Welcome to 'Ask A Doctor' service...
I've gone through your query in details...
I can understand your concern...

Well, from your description, there could've been a nerve entrapment of the spine (spinal-disc of the back) along with some muscle sprain...

I'd recommend her the following:

-Stay rested for at least the next few days...

-Apply a mild pain-killer spray (eg. Volini) around the affected area (avoid any kind of massaging without supervision)

-If the pain is unbearable, she may take ACETAMINOPHEN/PARACETAMOL (it can be taken round the clock 650mg up to three times daily after some food)...

-Avoid any strenuous activities, weight bearing, for now, avoid back/forward bending also...When sitting, sit with an erect spine (back-support can be used)...

If despite following all these there's no significant improvement within the next few days, then I'd recommend getting it evaluated further by an Orthopedician along with a few investigations (An X-ray of the lumbosacral spine, CBC, Vit D3, Vit-B12 levels, Uric acid, ESR to look into it further)...

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take Care
Kind Regards
