Thank you for posting on the Tai Chi forum.
What you are describing tells me that the first thing your student needs to do is visit her GP for a medical examination. If it has not got to do with the bone structure or muscles/tendons then it cannot be the way she is doing her Tai Chi.
When doing pushing hands make sure her hips are alligned i.e parallel to the ground and not tilted. See if that elleviates the pain.
