Snap Hip is a clinical condition characterized by an audible or palpable pop of the coxo-femoral joint, frequently asymptomatic. In some cases, the shot is painful and this condition is known as "snap hip syndrome". There are three different types:
  • External: it is the most common typology and is characterized by the click in the lateral region of the hip; the shot is shown when you walk or when you rotate the hip; the shot is not always painful and tends to disappear without specific cares.
  • Internal extra articular: it is characterized by the click in the anterior region of the hip; the shot is shown when you move from an externally flex-rotated position to an internally extended-rotated position; the shot is painful and there is also the trochanteric bursitis.
  • Internal intra-articular: it is caused by injuries of the acetabular labrum, cartilage lesions or calcifications; the shot is not always painful and can disappear without specific care.
