Online Continuing Education Course Objectives

“Snapping” is a common complaint regarding structures in and around the hip joint. Known as coxa saltans, snapping hip syndromes are traditionally classified into three categories: Internal, external, and intra-articular. The associated snapping is most likely caused by a tendon passing over a bony structure or mechanical signs of an intraarticular injury. Approaches to diagnosis and treatment are unique and range from conservative management to surgical procedures
