marigold Posted August 6, 2013 Report Share Posted August 6, 2013 Does anyone else worry about that sound that's worse than nails on a blackboard? That sound of clicking joints?....familiar to anyone else? This is an experience I have had to have, where my dd feels a need to adjust her instrument (ie. long ballet body) by stretching something out, but then, every once in a while, also finds happiness in that movement that causes something to click. Something that I don't think should click! My first introduction to clicking was in her ankles and I adapted to that, which sometimes is heard during a dance movement, but nothing to apparently worry about. But then there came the sound from the hip area, the "adjustment" that she claims "fixes" something and "feels better". She does that rarely, but it always produces a horrified shudder from me and a big grin from her. I was recently tortured by her when she clicked her TOES. No doctor has said these sounds are anything to worry about. This is after a month of many back to back hours of pointe work. Has anyone else heard this sound coming from toes? Quote Link to comment
