There are three types of snapping hip: internal (iliopsoas tendon or hip flexor), intra-articular (loose bodies), and external (IT band).  In most patients the snapping is merely an annoyance, but it can lead to pain and dysfunction, especially with athletic activities.  When non-surgical measures have failed, these conditions can be treated arthroscopically.
