If it was my horse, I would start with a chiropractor and go from there especially if this is new. IF she is unaligned somewhere it would cause her to compensate in other areas and she would become unevened muscle-wise.
I would not try to adjust the saddle to her with the way she is before ruling out if it's something that can be fixed and worked on.
If she is out chiropractically, (and this is just what I would do) I would get her adjusted, give her the recommended few days off afterwards and then start working her on the lunge. Really making her work those back muscles. Get her to stretch as much as you can. Also what is really good to build up a topline is lots of backing. If you are comfortable bareback, jump on her bareback. Do lots of transitions, up and down. Walk and trot over trot poles. And lots of stretchy trots!
