I think most of us have heard a popping, clicking or clunking sounds from our hips as we go about our movements. And most of the time, it is not usually even painful apart from the routine concerning checks at our hips then we move on.
You may have moved on, but I know a thought must have crossed your mind about why your hip had produced that sound.
There are basically two reasons that explain this phenomenon. Either it is a serious hip joint problem, or it is just a case of muscles and tendons snapping over hip joint bones.
