In brief: JHS

Joint hypermobility syndrome (jhs) is an inherited condition of loose ligaments & is better known by doctors outside United States; manifested by ability to oppose thumb to forearm & touch palms to floor with knees locked.
Greater joint laxity can be induced by traumatic injury (extreme sports), childbirths, & lifting while turning. See osteopath for therapeutic ideas. Keep muscles well toned.

In brief: Exam needed

Likely causes include capsular strain or labral injury.
Snapping psoas syndrome or other tendinitis from the laxity is possible. You need an exam from a hip surgeon to properly evaluate the problem.
