Physiotherapy for ‘Snapping Hip Syndrome’ | Move Physiotherapy Fremantle
‘Snapping Hip’ syndrome is characterised by a snapping or popping sensation experienced at the front of the hip or pelvis when walking, moving from sitting to standing or rotating the hip. The snapping sensation occurs when a tight muscle moves over the bony protrusions in your hip.
Most commonly, these sensations highlight tightness affecting the TFL muscle and ITB; along with the rectus femoris muscle (quadriceps). Snapping hip syndrome is generally painless and harmless, however these symptoms may highlight biomechanical abnormalities that can predispose other lower limb injuries.
Move Physiotherapy are experts in diagnosing and treating hip and groin injuries. We offer longer appointment times to comprehensively assess your symptoms, provide a detailed diagnosis and assess the many contributing factors. Our longer followup appointments allow us to return you to the activities you love doing at the fastest timeframe.
Treatment for Snapping Hip syndrome may involve a series of modalities including remedial massage, or dry needling. These injuries almost always require an element of exercise rehabilitation to adequately strengthen muscles around the hip and restore your normal biomechanics.
