Ok so im a gymanast and my wrist started to crack when I rotated it and now it hurts to hold myself in a handstand, front support, and swinging on bar?

Your problem will get worse without a proper evaluation and a plan to correct it. Good luck! ...Read more
What is it called when one ilium is rotated up and forward and the other rotated back and down? Pelvic torsion?
SI joint strain: Judging from your question, it sounds like you might have sacro-ilium joint dysfunction. This can happen incidentally due to misalignment along the the lower part of the spine in relation to the plane of the hips. Therefore, one side can "pull" which causes the rotation. Usually physical therapy can help strengthen the weaker side and re-align the hips if someone is experiencing soreness and pain. ...Read more
