While not a serious medical problem, snapping hip can be bothersome and may occasionally cause some discomfort. This “snap” is sometimes felt or heard when standing up from a seated position, walking or while swinging the leg, and is usually due to muscle and tendon tightness in the hip. It may also be a sign of a more serious injury, such as a labral tear. If the condition grows worse and is left untreated, hip bursitis – an uncomfortable swelling of the fluid-filled sacs that cushion the joint – may develop.

If rest, anti-inflammatory medications, and avoidance of high-impact activities fail to relieve hip discomfort, consult with a doctor at ORA Orthopedics. Your ORA doctor will carefully evaluate your condition, address any concerns you may have, and suggest a course of snapping hip treatment tailored to your needs. Conservative treatments like physical therapy and corticosteroid injections are usually all that is necessary to relieve pain and dysfunction, however in some cases surgery may be recommended to repair or remove fragments of a torn labrum.
