Susanne Posted October 22, 2002 Report Share Posted October 22, 2002 Hi! (again, I have a lot of questions today) I have been taking classes for almost a year now. I have always noticed some difficulties for med to point my feet (or walk in extremely high heels) especially my right foot. I went to see a doctor he said that I probably have an extra bone in my foot right above the heel which causes pain. He also told me that I could do stretching exersices with theraband to improve my pointe. My question is: How much can I stretch? Because I feel pain in my foot with the theraband too. The only time I don't feel pain is when I sit on the floor with the leg bent at the side and pressing down the foot (almost as if you sit on your feet, but without actually sitting on them, so you look like an "M" if watched from above) But when I do this I'm afraid that I might overstretch the front of my foot. Is it possible that my body will produce more soft bone due to my rough treatment? :confused: I would appreciate any help because I really would like to go en pointe someday. As far as I can see that's not possible with how my feet look like today because I don't think I will be able to "go over" far enough. My left foot is more flexible than my right one, so when I'm on demi-pointe I notice that spread the weight uneven as the left leg becomes "longer" because on the lackness of flexibility in my right foot. Okay I will stop rambling...I guess I'm just a little bit dissapointed because of my little extra bone. Maybe I will never be able to do proper tendues or point properly...that makes me really sad.
