Snapping Hip Syndrome?

I work out a lot in between my weekly dressage lessons. I focus on core, hips and legs. Well lately, I've been hearing popping sounds coming from my back when I try to do leg raises. Also, whem I'm on the elyptical, my left knee and left hip have started making popping noises as well.

I read that riders commonly suffer from Snapping Hip Syndrome because repeated hip flexion leads to injury.

Anybody out there with the same problem?

Do you just ignore it and work through it?

Do you see a chiro, or PT or ?

Thanks, I made an appointment with a chiro for now but will try an osteopath if he's not able to help.

I have never heard of that, but my left knee is a mess from riding, and both my hips pop all the time. With the hip popping, it will go away if I go to yoga regularly. The muscles around my hips are just too tight I guess. You might give yoga a try. I found that it helped my riding in addition to helping my hips. It just generally seems to be helpful for body stiffness and pain.

Are you just noticing a noise, or do you have pain with the popping or with use? I think some people just have noisy joints, too.

Mostly just noise. It's just uncomfortable but not painful.
