What is Tendonitis of the Hip?

Tendonitis of the hip, often referred to as "snapping hip syndrome," is a condition characterized by a snapping or clicking sound in the hip during specific movements. It may also cause pain when bending over or lifting the knees towards the chest. This issue arises due to irritation or inflammation of the hip-flexor tendon, which crosses over the hip socket. Causes of tendonitis include repetitive movement and overuse or improper stride or walking habits.

Key aspects to consider about tendonitis of the hip are:

  • Recognizable by snapping or clicking sound during certain movements
  • Pain experienced when bending over or lifting knees towards the chest
  • Caused by irritation or inflammation of the hip-flexor tendon
  • Result of repetitive movement, overuse, or improper walking habits

Treatment options for tendonitis of the hip vary depending on the severity of the condition. In most cases, conservative treatment methods are effective in alleviating discomfort and improving range of motion. These options include:

  • Rest: Allowing the affected hip to rest and recover from any inflammation or irritation
  • Injections: Administering corticosteroid injections to reduce inflammation and provide relief from pain
  • Anti-inflammatory medication: Taking over-the-counter or prescribed anti-inflammatory drugs to alleviate discomfort and reduce inflammation
  • Physical therapy: Engaging in targeted exercises and stretches designed to strengthen the hip muscles, improve flexibility, and correct any improper walking habits

In more severe cases where conservative treatments do not provide adequate relief, minimally invasive surgery may be necessary to address the issue. This surgical intervention can help alleviate discomfort and improve the range of motion in the affected hip.
