Hi!
You can get an MRI / CT Lumbar Scan done for your wife. There may have been some damage to the local tissue while doing the Lumbar Puncture.
Back Pain after Lumbar Puncture is a common complaint. Till the reports of the scan you can take some NSAIDs for temporary relief.
You may also think about physiotherapy as a treatment option.
