WriteLife Posted November 17, 2008 Report Share Posted November 17, 2008 Okay maybe not a mutant but definately unusual. One of the advantages of having a dd in physical therapy is you learn things you didn't know before. We have been informed that dd has one hyperextended leg and one "normal" leg. I thought this was unusal and kind of weird but apparently dd lost the genetic lottery. Anyway, I was wondering how common this actually was for dancers and am looking for some tips for dd when it comes to working with one leg that hyperextends and one that doesn't. As a side note, the PT said that because she is going through puberty her joints are looser and the hyperextension is looking severe. The left (hyperextended) leg is weaker than the right. Before the injury she was sitting in her left hip and having trouble pulling up out of it. As her teachers have never mentioned this before, I'm wondering if they've even noticed. So does anyone know what she should be thinking about? I've read a lot about hyperextension on this list but I havn't read anything about dealing with only one leg having this issue. Thanks in advanced Quote Link to comment
