What is the snapping hip syndrome?
The snapping hip syndrome is a condition characterized by a snapping sensation or a popping sound in the hip with certain movements. As it is particularly common in dancers, it has become known as “dancer’s hip”.
The condition is generally regarded as harmless as long as it doesn’t cause pain. It is, however, almost always related to dysfunction of the pelvis (twists and blocks) and to relevant muscle dysfunction. It should therefore be taken seriously, as these conditions can lead to a whole range of other problems over time.
