Case Study: a successful treatment of the Snapping Hip Syndrome

This article will demonstrates the successful treatment of a case of extra-articular Snapping Hip.

First let's see the symptoms: the patient was a runner used to running long distances.

The person changed the type of training from medium-long distances to short distances and very fast interval training. After some weeks of this new workout routine, the person started experiencing as he ran a "click" or snap at the level of the left Greater Trochanter. In a short time, hip pain developed as well.
