SNAPPING HIP SYNDROME

Classic PresentationSnapping_Hip_Syndrome.jpg

Other than snapping, many patients do not have pain.  The location of the snapping is a good indicator of the offending structure.

Cause

Snapping at the hip is often due to tendons that snap over bony prominences or bursae.  Occasionally, abduction (moving the leg towards the mid-line) may cause a suction effect similar to joint gapping with manipulation.  Even more rarely, a loose body may be found in the joint.  However, with loose bodies, there are accompnaying signs of mechanical blockage of movement.
