Hello,

Is there any history of trauma as she has severe pain during movement?

The common causes are:
1) Trauma or injury
2) Sprain
3) Muscle spasm
4) Neuropathy
5) May chance of renal stone
6) Improper posture

Give tablet Aceclofenac as per her weight; apply diclofenac gel or volini spray. Do physiotherapy as advised. Also, do an x-ray and MRI of back after consultation.

I will suggest you to follow up with detailed history or consult with orthopedician for detailed examination.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale
