Okay so I have a gymnast who is competing level 4 this year and her splits are so far off the floor but I know she is trying her hardest. This lil girl was born without hip sockets and had to have surgery as a baby to fix it I mean she has the scars to prove it. Anywho she was in a body cast till she was like 5 so her leg flexibility is not there. It really hurts her to do splits somedays. I mean the doctors didn't even know if she would walk. Now she is doing round off back handsprings. She is one of the hardest workers I have in the gym and she has been doing splits at home trying to get them but she is no where close to haveing them . But of course they are required in level 4. They have really been hurting her hips lately and I don't know what to do. Could use a lil help.
