Guest dreamofdance Posted September 29, 2007 Report Share Posted September 29, 2007 My DD, seemingly overnight, has developed bow-leggedness. This is not something she was born with, nor is it anything we have noticed in her 5 years of dancing. (She is 10). I am wondering if there is something that she is doing in ballet (possibly incorrectly) that could be causing this. I should also mention she seems to be developing a small degree of hyperextension that was not previously there either. Are the 2 related? Is this something that just develops as growing bodies change? Besides being obviously concerned about what this will mean in the dance world, I am more concerned about any long-term "health issues" this could cause her. Any advice/opinions would be appreciated as we can't get in to see an orthopedist for weeks. Quote Link to comment
