Why Does My Hip Pop When I Do Leg Raises?

Hip popping is also known as “Snapping hip syndrome

SHS is more common in women, though it can affect people of all genders and ages.

There are three main types of snapping hip syndrome:

  • Internal. Usually caused by your hip flexor muscles rubbing against a bony prominence at your hip 
  • External. Usually caused by your side hip muscles rubbing against a bony prominence. 

The youtube video that we created will show you some simple exercises that will help kick start your internal and external snapping hip problem.

  • Intra-articular. In this category, a snapping hip is caused by an actual hip joint issue or injury. Unlike external or internal SHS, intra-articular SFS isn’t caused by a tendon or muscle. There is actual structural damage to the actual hip joint  such as cartilage, labrum tear etc.

These are actual joint damage and I highly recommend you go see a physiotherapist to get it treated ASAP. You don’t always have to end up in surgery in these cases but it is also not something you can fix on your own 🙂

We can help you break this habit and lead a healthier and pain free lifestyle. 

Our physiotherapist will be able to give you individualised advice/ treatment plan that is tailored for your particular needs.

At Capital Physiotherapy, your initial appointment is 40-60minutes long. This allows our physios to be thorough in their assessment, as well as giving them enough time to give you treatment on the same consultation!
