When my right leg is raised and i lower it, my right side of the hip pops, sometimes it doesn't if i lower my leg slowly enough, i usually lean on my right leg if that helps at all, could it be that some of my hip flexors are too weak and inflexible? The popping is usually painless however it does cause discomfort. Also if i sit down and raise my right leg, my right side of the hip seems to rather tighten up or as if there were no space of the end of the leg bone to move around. This is only what it feels like though. Are there certain types of stretching and strengthening exercises that can help make this go away?
