Hi, it might be that she might have sustained s ligament or meniscal injury. Have x rays and MRI been done. if the meniscus is torn or the ACL is torn she might require surgery to receive her of symptoms. If the meniscus and ligaments are intact then she might not need. it depends on the clinical findings and MRI findings.
