YES!! Please, take her to the dr for Xrays & an MRI. I was dropped on my behind when I was about 5. I came home crying that my back hurt... my parents never took me to the Dr.
Throughout my childhood, I suffered from back pain of varying degrees. When I was pregnant with my 1st, my back completely "went out" -- I couldn't put any weight what-so-ever on my right side (sitting or standing). It was miserable.
Long story short, I finally had an MRI & Xrays done after his birth. I have facet disease, degenerative disc disease, bone spurs growing into the spine, severe nerve damage, 2 herniated discs, a ruptured disc, and slipped vertebrae all in my lower back.
The damage is consistant with a "severe trauma" like a car wreck or fall down stairs (which I never had either) and has now become degenerative (aka - will progressively get worse the rest of my life) because it was left untreated when it happened.
