Guest sdj3 Posted March 31, 2004 Report Share Posted March 31, 2004 I get a bad pain right below my right hip bone (the leg extending to the back) nearly everytime I grand jete or saut de chat (sp?) to my left. This has been happening ever since I started taking ballet classes again after 5 years off. The pain usually persists for one or two minutes, then wanes. It is a sudden pain, that feels tight and very sore, making it difficult to put weight on my right leg. I never have this problem with the other leg to the right. My left leg is slightly stronger and more flexible, but that is the only difference I can sense. My right hip has always been tighter than the left. I'm always completely warmed up before doing these jumps, so that's not the issue. I stretch my hip flexors slowly and carefully before and during class (only periodically during class, I try not to over-stretch). Any ideas why, or how to help? Quote Link to comment
