My 6yr old daughter is complaining of pain on the back of her knee. Could this be "growing pains" or something more?

In brief: Orthopaedic evaluate

Children with knee pain deserve a thorough orthopaedic evaluation if the pain lasts more than a few days and certainly if there is pain while at rest during the night.
Your child's pain is most likely a mild strain, but only a thorough musculoskeletal examination will answer this question with more certainty.
