In brief: Loose ligaments

Twenties female who experiences popping sensation with hip flexion experiences subluxation of sacroiliac joint (SIJ).
This might be common in someone who has chronic SIJ ligament injury and laxity, or in someone with Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, in which case the Brighton Criteria might be referenced.
