Not correct: Right l5s1 arthropathy doesn't cause popping, which emanates fr. Subluxing same sided scroiliac joint ( sij), which does "pop". Reason right sij pops is inherently loose ligaments, which allow counternutation of right sij when stable contralateral hemi-pelvis, w. Non-mobile sij, torques en block; from a moment of force imposed upon the left hemi-pelvis by an elevated ; extended left leg.
