Hello Dear,

I feel you should show your daughter to a clinician (Orthopaedician/ Orthopaedic Physical Therapist) for review.

An X-ray may be required to rule out any sort of a minor fracture or bony injury.

Immediate diagnosis is important to start the correct line of treatment and early & long term recovery.

Wishing her fast recovery
