In brief: Rule out Spondy's

It could be something as simple as sore muscles or a strain, but if it doesn't resolve within a week or so, i would have her checked out.
There's a back condition called a spondylolysis which is most common in teenagers. It's a sort of stress fracture. It can be diagnosed with an oblique x-ray. Your doctor will know what to do.
