Painful Hip "Catch"

SHARE

I have developed a “catch” in my left hip.
It started as a sharp pain on my upper thigh (similar to a charlie horse) when I would get up in the morning. By stretching my leg to the back and slightly twisting, there would be a “pop” and the pain would be gone.Now, I get the pain after getting up from a chair, getting out of the car, almost anytime I have been sitting for awhile.
It is coming more frequently and I can no longer get rid of it by stretching the leg. When the pain is there, walking is painful and I have very limited motion with that leg. Eventually, it works itself out and the pain diminishes.I have been to a chiropractor, and of course, we were unable to create the pain.
He moved my hip socket in every possible position, with no pain.Any idea what this could be and what I should start doing to resolve it? Thanks for any help or advice.
