Imagine you’re the guard in your high school soccer team. The teams are tied and you’re the last one standing between their attacker and your goalie. You manage to kick the ball away from the offense, then suddenly feel a *pop* in your inner thigh. Something doesn’t feel right. You start stumbling, and then the pain hits. This pain could feel mild, like a dull ache and slight weakness in your leg as you regain your balance; it could be severe enough to leave you immobile as you’re carried back to the bench by your teammates. If you’ve ever had a groin pull before, you may recognize the issue right away. However, this injury isn’t exclusive to soccer players. A tear or rupture appearing in your groin muscles can disrupt your activities and diminish leg strength.

If you notice your hips popping or snapping when you move a certain way, don’t be alarmed. There are many possible reasons why you might feel a click or snap in your hip during movements. Hip snapping is a common occurrence, especially in physically active people. However, chronic hip snapping followed by pain is often a telltale sign of a condition called “snapping hip syndrome.” This syndrome is more commonly known as dancer’s hip, due to its prevalence in dancers, but can develop in almost anyone.
