My 17 year old daughter competed in a dance competition,

Patient : My 17 year old daughter competed in a dance competition, and after her first of 9 performances, she was complaining of lower back pain. She gets back pain pretty frequently, but she said this time it felt different. She took ibuprofen, and continued to dance. By the end of the night she was obviously in pain, but she said it was bearable, so we just iced it. This morning, it seemed to be much worse and worsened throughout the day. Bending or twisting in any direction causes major pain, and does sitting for any amount of time. She can't even lay flat on her back comfortably. The pain is also radiating. We have done ice and OTC pain medications, but it isn't improving. What does this sound like, and to what type of doctor should I take her (urgent care, primary physician, specialist)?
