fairydancer Posted September 11, 2007 Report Share Posted September 11, 2007 I tried searching the threads and couldn't find exactly what I was looking for so please bear with me if I missed a thread that answered these questions. We've been told that DD needs to work on her turnout. If I had to guess, I'd say her pinky toes are less than 1 inch away from a flat turnout, but I don't know if that is truly from the hip down. I think the knees and ankles are "improving" on what the hips are actually doing and I think that's why her teachers have mentioned the turnout because its not from the hip. She tried to force a better turnout which was a huge mistake and landed her in the ortho's office this Spring. Thankfully she stopped forcing the turnout and suffered no permanent damage. I've seen people mention having turnout evaluated and/or measured. How or where can this been done? Can turnout safely be improved and, if so, how? Thanks! Quote Link to comment
