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.
