Hello,

I am 13 years old and sometimes even after I have warmed up my hipps pop. Sometimes it is not painful while other times it is. Could it be because I still growing??

 

Thanks in advance :D

Hello mixiedancer, and welcome to the Young Dancer's forum here on Ballet Alert! Online :wacko:

 

Popping hips are not a big problem unless they hurt. In your case, at 13, it very well could be because you are growing and your alignment is a bit off. Be very sure that you are placed correctly and that the hips are aligned and the weight properly forward. Keep your leg, especially in side positions, well inside your control zone and don't push for too much rotation right now.

i had that problem for a long time! if your problem is your side extension, it helps a lot to bring your leg forward a little so that you can turn it out more, until you can bring it all the way to the side. good luck! :rolleyes:

ummm, five6seveneight, I believe that is what I just said in the post above yours. :)

Also, to reiterate, that hips that pop, but don't hurt, are nothing to worry about. At thirteen, they are not necessarily dangerous if they pop and hurt either, but if you experience persistent pain, then the doc is the next step. As for any other popping, it can lay down a rap beat, and it still won't qualify for a trip to the doc. You might hire yourself out to a rap group, though, as percussion. After all, if Baryshnikov can dance to his own heartbeat.... :)

Mine used to pop in passé position, and hurt. I went to my doctor and they said it was probably that my bones were growing and the ligaments hadn't quite caught up yet. With ice and an extreme amount of stretching out, it went away in a month or so...feel better! :thumbsup:

Mixiedancer, I had a very painful hip-popping incident in class today! Different from the one I had years ago, though. WHat is your pain like? As Mr. Johnson said, mine popped (perhaps out of place or something) when I put it in passé position today, and then it hurt every time I put it there again, but did not pop. I think I might be using those mucsles too much, or something...not sure. How is your hip?

Now, that sounds like plain old fatigue. You're overworking. Take it easy. You won't be doing anybody, least of all yourself, any favors by grinding yourself to powder in an intensive. Reduce your class schedule, or even STOP (horrors!) for a couple of days.
