If you have chronic popping in the hip joint, you should have it examined by a orthopedist. The presence of pain is also a major indicator to have it examined. If the issue is not addressed, it is possible for athritis to develop as you get older. If the popping is being caused by a tendon snapping across a bone, you could develop issues in which the tendon and muscles weaken and cause chronic pain and inflammation.

What can cause cramps in my fingers?
Maoshing Ni, PhD, LAc, Gerontology, answeredCramps arise when there is a disruption in the natural flow of energy, blood, and fluid circulation. This can be caused by a variety of factors. Lifestyle, work and recreational habits, and inherited genes are all important things to consider. I suggest you consult with your primary physician to rule out calcification or salt built up in the joints.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
