Unlikely: Much more likely you have 'snapping hip' syndrome where tendons can 'pop' as they attach across your hip joint( fascia lata about greater trochanter, or iliopsoas muscle along ' front' of hip joint).True hip dislocations in adults require urgent closed reduction and are most often seen in mva's where the driver/ passenger's thigh/ knee strikes the dashboard 'pushing' the hip 'out the back'(post).
