I recently went to a chiropractor for a similar issue (also had knee popping) and he identified a couple spots in my muscles that he was able to work out and get back in to line - no more popping.
If it bugs you, get it looked at. My only regret is that I lived with popping/out of line hip/knee for 8+ weeks before getting it looked at. Depending on what's going on a chiropractor may not be the guy to fix it, but then he'll send you to the next place!

i, too, think it's worth having it checked out. based on how my back cracks sometimes during post-workout stretching after my back spasm a couple years ago, it could very well be that you need to strengthen your hips, but it is best to make sure nothing else is going on!

my left hip pops every single rep when I do any floor exercises that involve raising my leg while lying on my back. That leg was broken when I was a kid; not sure if that has anything to do with it in my case or not. Sometimes I get the giggles in group exercise classes because everybody can hear it unless the music is loud
There could be any number of reasons for that to happen. Sometimes it could be due to inflammation, weak muscles or muscles/tendons or something happening with the movement of a muscle or tendon over the bone. It's hard to say for sure what is happening for you, but if it continues, especially if you have any pain with it, it would be a good idea to check with your doctor as they can give you more specifics of what is happening for you and the best plan of action to help it not cause any damage or pain.

When I'm doing reverse crunches my hips pop, there's no pain involved but it is annoying. What is probably the cause of this?
