    when i lift my left leg and bring it down there is a dull knock / click partial to the center-left area in my pelvis

    when i lift my right leg and bring it down it NEVER does this

    this only happens if i relax my upper torso and hunch over slightly
    while attempting this simple movement on my left leg

    i had mri previously with results of medial plica syndrome and joint effusion in my left knee - after a jogging injury in 2010

    is there a way to correct this through surgery or strength training on my quardiceps?


    kind regards,

    Hello,


    A click without pain may be normal but a painful clunk is more serious. Please see your surgeon and get x-rays done. See what your surgeon thinks. A knee issue will cause a click in your pelvis.

    meant to put a "dull clunk" in my title (this is without pain in my pelvis area)

    is this serious?
