Hi, if it is s localised pain it is likely to be a strain. Ask her to take adequate bed rest. if she is up an about all the time pain will persist inspire of analgesics and muscle relaxant. you can also go to a Physio for some  kind of heat treatment. wait for a few days. if not subsiding consult an orthopaedician
