Welcome to Healthcaremagic.

Such pain is felt more due to weakness in the joints involved .There could be joint inflammation of bone demineralization which renders the joint sensitive and present with severe pain even with minor trauma.

I would suggest you to take her to a Orthopedician who after examining can find out the exact cause and treat.

Wish you good health.
