Snapping hip syndrome?

Has anyone heard of this thing? Recently when I contract my right hip there seems to be a tingling sensation in my pelvic socket around the hip flexors, and it seems like some tendon or cartilage is rubbing against a bone?

And it feels extremely tight if I push my leg (like a SL jump or horse kick) and feels like something might tear if I continue with it. It goes off and on, during fast exercise like basketball game.

Looking up snapping hip syndrome, it says one should stretch hip flexors and it band, but i've been stretching it religiously for the last several months, not sure what is wrong.

My experience with it is that it's all about femoral control. I have it on and off on the right side and this has been my go to for it:

Mine doesn't cause pain or any discomfort really so I can deal with it at my own pace. If yours is then I'd get it checked just to make sure there's nothing more sinister going on.

There was also a good post on t-nation about popping your sacrum. I do this accidentally when I'm driving mainly and it feels awesome.

Going to try those exercises in the links as soon as i have access to clean flat surface space to lie down. Thanks Coges!

I'm still curious what I did to get the onset of this condition. I've never gotten it before than boom the other day in the middle of a pickup game, i feel something strange around my hip/groin muscles.  And it goes away and comes back, sometimes within seconds or minutes.

Perhaps it is because i started using this machine for a few sets lately?

Sigh, got a training session and scrimmage with the players/coaches the next 2 days and this stupid snapping hip crap is acting up here and there lol, especially during bball type cuts.

Came across this the other day. May be of interest too.

My hips click all the time but not as bad as fastdoeslie is referring to but to the extent the guy in the video is mentioning about. When I straight it and bend it it always clicks but not out of place, just clicks.

My thing is that it doesn't really just click, it tightens up and almost locks up.

I've found that this stretch helps:

The problem is that I hurt my LCL awhile ago and it still hasn't fully healed, so it is painful during this stretch....

Sitting real low on a step causes it almost every time as well.

to make the pigeon stretch gentler, you can use the arm of a couch or some other high platform. position the folded leg on it in the same way and move around on the plant leg to find a position where you're stretching the hip without bothering your knee. even using a big pillow under the folded leg can help.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

Hip/groin became a bit immobile again today the right one.

Pretty fuckin' annoying tbh. Not really painful at all, just not very mobile and fluid like my other hip/groin.

The prone/lying down version of pigeon can really wreck me - very risky for my knee. The standing variations can feel good, but has still proven risky for me.

This stretch is deadly for my hip, believe it or not:



I can probably go perform that stretch and F my hip up instantly.


This is the only hip/glute stretch I still do, it seems to be the safest for me. Also, instead of flexing the off knee more to bring the stretched leg closer to me, I just twist towards the off leg a bit. If I bring the stretched leg closer to me, seems more risky for my knees.





When I get annoyed that a stretch is risky for me, and try to improve that mobility/flexibility, I always get hurt. :ninja:
