My 9 year old is complaining of sever back pain located

Customer Question

My 9 year old is complaining of sever back pain located mostly in the center and worse around the spine but stretches out to both sides.
JA: Have you had any recent injuries? What seems to make the pain better or worse?
Customer: She hasn't had any,I asked her if she was hit in the back or stomach and she said no but with 2 younger brothers I had to ask
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No, she has always been a pretty healthy kid. Genetics aren't great but she hasn't shown signs of anything.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and then connect you two.
Customer: I tried having her lay down and she cried but as soon as the pressure is off it lessens

This is very unusual for a child to complain of pain like this

It could be infection of some type
