Condition: Snapping Hip
Medical Name: Snapping Hip Syndrome
What is it: The hip flexor can become tight, making the tendon move over a boney aspect of the hip. The snapping in the hip is the tendon rolling or snapping over the bone which can become painful over time. There are multiple sites that the tendon can snap over and different muscles/tendons that can be involved. The hip flexor is the most common.
Typical Tx: Stretching, strengthening, heat, ultrasound and muscle stimulation.
How we treat it: Releasing the tendon is key to resolving the snapping. Dry needling with muscle techniques designed to release the muscle resolves this condition. Ruling out altered biomechanics of the hip and weakness of the gluteal muscles should be performed as well.
