Sacroiliac joint: A female teenager with a chronically pained hip region and a "snapping" sound emanating from that region needs to be checked for pelvic joint (sacroiliac joint) subluxation. The lumbar spine does not snap, but the sacroiliac joint does. See an osteopath for a diagnosis. Check the brighton criteria to see if you have benign joint hypermobility syndrome.

Joint Hypermobility Syndrome (JHS) criteria can be found at the following: benign joint hypermobility syndrome-gp-training.net www.gp-training.net/rheum/hypermobility/index.htm In studying this medical condition it is useful to know that there is a Brighton Criteria as well as a Beighton Score for joint hypermobility. Both evaluations are essentially looking for the same physical condition. Yes, they are spelled differently!
