Oh, Snap! Common Symptoms of Snapping Hip Syndrome

Commonly referred to as “Dancer’s Hip,” Snapping Hip Syndrome affects many dancers, athletes, and individuals who have injured the muscles, tendons, or cartilage around their hip bone sockets. It can range from a mild annoyance to a debilitating condition, characterized by a telltale snapping sound or a snapping sensation in your hip whenever you move. Other symptoms may include swelling, inflammation, leg muscle weakness, or the feeling that your hip’s coming out of place.

Snapping Hip Syndrome Treatments are Available

If your pain isn’t severe, you can try applying ice or using over-the-counter pain relievers to treat it. Many also reduce or modify their daily activity levels to help alleviate the pain. For more severe pain, a physician will recommend physical therapy. Your doctor may also suggest corticosteroid injections or surgery. You may need to complete repetitive quadriceps, hamstring, piriformis, and iliotibial band stretching during physical therapy. If left untreated, snapping hip syndrome may increase your risks for further joint damages. If you’re seeking treatment for snapping hip syndrome, call KSF Orthopaedic Center for more details about our many available treatment options.
