Q:

How do I "pop" my hip?

A:

Pop your hip joint easily at home yourself by utilizing a simple stretch technique, notes Gary Crowley from Do-It-Yourself-Joint-Pain-Relief.com. Sit on the floor with your legs stretched out. While keeping both legs pressed to the ground, stretch out one leg to the side while twisting your torso inwards.

Place your hand on your outstretched leg and lean downward to emphasize the stretch while twisting your torso towards your other leg. A small popping sound in your hip indicates you have successfully popped your hip. Switch legs by swapping their positions, and repeat the movements on the other side to pop your other hip, says Crowley.
