Snapping Hip Syndrome

About Snapping Hip Syndrome:

Snapping Hip Syndrome is a condition in which those that are affected feel a snapping or popping sensation in the hip often caused when a muscle or tendon moves over a bony structure around the hip area.  Although it has the ability to produce pain, it is typically painless.  However, the sensation can make people dealing with this condition feel wary of the health of their hip.  Snapping Hip Syndrome has the capacity to cause bursitis but if treated properly, these problems can be avoidable.
