performancesmiles Posted January 10, 2009 Report Share Posted January 10, 2009 I have a problem with my hip. It hurts in a straddle position as well as the turn out stretch (on the stomach in a flipped butterfly position). It hurts 'inside' my hip in retiré. One of my ballet instructors told me that I strained it. My other ballet instructor told me that I should ease into stretches from now on and only do them when I'm warm. I had been working on my straddle and doing stretches to improve it everyday. I wonder if that is the cause of this pain? I don't want to stop stretching altogether because I really want to improve my extension. Is there anything I can do to relieve this hip pain? I also have pain at the back of my ankle. It's not tendonitis, though. Is there a stretch to relieve this pain? It hurts sometimes in relevé and when I point my foot. I want to improve my extension in derrière and devant. What excercises, besides splits, would help? Quote Link to comment
