Snapping hip a very common complaint in runners, dancers and athletes with repetitious use of their hips. Most people only feel or hear an unpainful snap, in which case, there is nothing to worry about. However, pain and/or weakness may be a sign of a true problem. Some sort of painless hip snapping happens in about 5-10% of people. Many times a physician will need to be consulted to help determine the cause of the snapping. An exam will be done and hopefully reproduction of the snapping will lead to the diagnosis. Many times externally rotating and abducting the leg will reproduce a snap. An xray may be done to look at the hip joint and determine if there is a bony loose body in the joint. For some conditions an MRI with dye (arthrogram) may be necessary. Ultrasound has become a mainstay in diagnosing snapping hip and can be used in the office to visualize tendons while the hip is in motion.
