Hip hurts bad. Have popping while trying splits. Tried ice and heat. Solution?

I am a dancer and last weekend I was doing my splits with my left leg in front... I was perfectly fine but the next day I woke up and my hips hurt very bad. I had sharp pains directly below my butt and a popping everytime I tried my splits. I cannot do them anymore. I figured I might just need to rest my hips and muscles so I waited for a week... I tried again after a lot of ice, rest, and heat..... The same problem occured. What do I do?!

Thank you for consulting HCM.You need to have an x-ray pelvis to know the damage.1 week of rest is not sufficient to get the hip too be normalas there is injury to muscle or tendon over there.You need complete rest,iche therapy and along with that you need to take NSAIDs like tylenol or chymoral forte and consult your doctor.Thank you.
