Thanks for posting your query.

I can understand your concern for these symptoms as a parent. Most likely it is due to muscle strain and injury to ligaments and tendons of the shoulder and upper arm but we have to rule out any fracture as well. Although at this age fracture is a relatively less possibility yet an x-ray clavicle and arm needs to be done to rule out even a small hair line fracture.

Apply some cold compresses by wrapping ice in a towel and consult her pediatrician as she may need good health.
