Hi,

If no trauma history is there then pain may be due to over stretching or muscular in origin so give a few days rest from athletic activities and do sitz bath. Meanwhile, get her routine tests done along with growth hormones tests. If everything turns out to be in normal range then we can also think of local steroids injections.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
