Thank you for your query.

Soreness can persist for some time and will affect the child. As you have not mentioned the age it is very difficult to say if counselling shall be advisable. You can give her some analgesics to reduce the soreness and follow it up with hot fomenation. Encourage her to take part in activities in a phased manner.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter an early recovery.
