If she can go and consult an orthopaedic it would be better. The X-ray report is normal and we cannot comment on muscle tear on X-ray. Seems that she might be having lot of swelling for the technician to say that. She will need anti inflammatory and other medicines to reduce swelling and rest to part in form of immobilisation with plaster slab, splint or bandage.
