Hello - any physios out there? Daughter does have an appointment to see someone tomorrow but they're not dance trained - couldn't get anyone locally at short notice (daughter home from vocational school for Easter hols). Anyway she was doing class (brilliant local teacher) yesterday and all went well except at the very end, doing jumps (not big jumps but the ones on the spot where you bounce up and down - she told me the name of that movement but I've forgotten it). DD had to stop in pain - very sore down side of left lower leg. Teacher said DD not landing properly - and DD agrees and says she has developed a bad habit for a while now, where she doesn't bring her heels right down when she lands. Does that make sense? Basically I am searching for reassurance that rest and ice are the best treatments for now, and please someone tell me it's not a serious dance threatening condition!! A little googling about anatomy tells me it could be the peroneal tendon - but don't take my word for that. You can probably tell that I am not the best informed of parents - I have no dance background and DD is the first ever dancer or performer of any kind in our family. Can anybody please offer any words of advice - in particular, does anyone recognise this condition? Thank you so much if you've managed to read all of this!
