In brief: Iliotibial band @hip
External snapping hip most commonly involves the often tight iliotibial band that extends from its origin off your pelvis down the outside of your thigh across the knee to insert on your tibia just below the joint line.
When it becomes excessively tight, it can snap across the prominence of your hip (greater trochanter.
