Yes: Young female has "hip" discomfort & sense of "locking" + radiation of pain to groin. These symptoms are compatible w. sacroiliac joint, SIJ, disorder. Vertebral disk disorders do not radiate to groin, but SIJ does. Absent childbirth or mechanical injury of SIJ, there becomes a need to consider contribution of Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, JHS. Osteopaths have diagnostic skills in this arena.
