Snapping Hip Syndrome
Snapping hip syndrome is a term used to describe three distinct hip problems:
• The first is when the iliotibial band snaps over the outside of the thigh (Trochanter major).
• The second occurs when the deep hip flexor (Psoas) snaps over the front of the hip joint.
• Finally, tears of the cartilage, or labrum, around the hip socket can cause a snapping sensation.
