What Does A Locking Hip Feel Like
Why does my hip feel like its going to lock up on me when I put it in a awkward position and its been happening for like a year. I'm young.
Not usually: Depends on what you mean by locking. In can be from an internal hip problem (like a labral tear or osteoarthritis) or from an external hip problem like "snapping hip syndrome" or something completely different depending on what you mean by "hip locking". Sacroilitis usually causes very focal pain over the sacroiliac joint and can sometimes cause radiation into the buttocks, groin, hip, or leg. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
