My back really, really hurts! Read below please!
I am a 15 year old ballet dancer. My back is very flexible, and I can rest the back of my head on my back leg while sitting in a split. I was in class and went to do a back bend and my back cracked and really hurt. It felt better after about 10 minutes, so I went back to dancing but was careful. Then in pas de deux class, I went to pique, or leap onto full pointe an into an arabesque, where the leg goes up in back and the back bends at a extreme angle to keep it up and the leg as high as possible, and it hurt again and continued to crack. It is sharp pain that kills whenever my back arche in the slightest. Any ideas as to what it may be? Thanks
