Snapping hip syndrome

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) - In Chesterfield Dr. Larry Benson is helping patients with snapping hip syndrome.

This is a condition characterized by a snapping sensation at the front and side of the hip when walking and running.

Usually this occurs because the muscles in question are too tight. Stretching and strengthening exercises are useful.

Anti-inflammatory medication and stretching are helpful. If dysfunction is also present adding physical therapy will probably be necessary.
