Snapping hip syndrome (SHS) is a hip disorder that causes a pop or snap sound or sensation around your hip area whenever you move your hip or perform any physical activity like running or walking. While this hip joint disorder often affects athletes and dancers, any person, regardless of age or gender, can experience SHS at some point in their life.
This condition is often unpainful, and the only symptom most people will experience or feel is the “snap” or “pop” sound around the hip joint. However, if you are a dancer or athlete, SHS can cause uncomfortable pain and weakness in the affected hip joint region, affecting your performance.
Regardless of whether your SHS is painful or not, you do want to speak with a physical therapist to help you pinpoint the root cause of the problem and prepare appropriate remedy options. Our skilled and respectful physical therapists at Suarez Physical Therapy are here to help wherever you are in Las Vegas.
We can help you identify the source of the annoying snap sound around your hip to prepare a targeted treatment plan to improve your hip strength and return to your daily activities as soon as possible.
