Guest dancingforever Posted May 14, 2004 Report Share Posted May 14, 2004 I've had to pop my hips to be able to turnout more and not feel tight for about 9 months. I asked if doing this was ok, and I was told that as long as I wasn't in pain, popping would be fine. Well, I'm having to do it more and more--probably a dozen times during barre and stretch, and maybe half a dozen during the rest of class. On my right side, where the leg and hip connect, there is a pain when I developpe to the side. I think this is my hip flexor, and I've been doing some lunges to stretch it, but I'm really worried because it hurts, almost like it gets stuck past 110 degrees or so. Actually, when I support the underside of my thigh with my hand, the pain goes away. It's only when I am actively using the muscles to keep my leg us. Maybe I am gripping? I pop both sides, but the left doesn't have this problem... What do I do? Quote Link to comment
