Patient Education for Snapping Hip...
Snapping Hip? Good news: 2/3 of people with painful snapping hip improve with conservative treatment – this is why, even in athletes, conservative treatment is the standard.
First thing’s first – resting and avoiding activities that lead to painful snapping might be necessary to initiate the healing process. This often results in a major reduction of symptoms.
But this doesn’t guarantee that the problem won’t come back once you resume your activity. For help here, we must address the hip muscles themselves – gradually loading and progressively strengthening them.
