Listening To Your Body Atlanta, GA

Your body is an amazing machine. And just like any machine, if something goes wrong it usually has a way to let you know. At times, your body will just stop functioning. Other times, it may function but with a great deal of pain. And there are other times when your body actually makes sounds for you to listen to to signal that something is wrong.

Snapping Hip

Snapping hip syndrome is just as the name implies. It is accompanied by a snapping sensation (and sometimes even a sound) that is experienced in the front or side of your thigh. It can also develop on the outer side of your hip. There are times when pain is associated with the snapping, and other times it is just a pop or snap sound or sensation.

Types of Snapping Hips

There are several reasons your hips might be snapping. It could be due to your IT-band moving over your hipbone as your leg moves forward and backward. It could also be due to your hip flexor muscle or tendon movement over your pelvis. There’s also a chance it could be due to a hip labral tear.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
