HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this. What you are describing is most concerning for a back problem. I would suggest that you keep your dog as still as possible until you can get her into your vet for an examination. Your vet should start with a thorough exam and then take xrays of the back if necessary. Typically non steroidal drugs and muscle relaxants will be prescribed to treat this. Cold laser can also benefit these patients tremendously.

Just make sure not to allow her to do anymore jumping until she can be seen by your vet as she could really cause neurological damage if this turns out to be back problem.

I hope this helps you but let me know if you need additional help as I check my computer each night. Sincerely, DRB
