What is Hip Bursitis?
Bursitis is inflammation of the bursa. Bursa is a small jelly-like bag that serves as a cushion between the bones and soft tissue on top to reduce friction between them. The hip point (Greater Trochanter) has a large enough bursa that can become itchy.
There are two main hip exchanges, the Trochanteric bursa (trochanteric bursitis) and the Ischial bursa. Trochanteric bursa is located on the outside of the hip.
Causes of Hip Bursitis
According to our Hip Bursitis Specialist Clinic, causes of Hip Bursitis include:
- Bone protrusion or calcium deposits, which can develop in the tendons associated with Trochanter (bone growth exceeds the upper end of the thigh bone)
- Hip injuries, which can occur as a result of falling on your hips, banging the hips on the edges of the furniture or lying on one side of your body for a longer time
- Foot Length is not the same, if one leg is shorter than the other foot more than 1 inch
- Injuries Due to Recurrent Stress (Overused) – this can occur when climbing stairs, cycling, running or after standing for a long time
- Spinal disease, which can occur due to arthritis of the lumbar (lower part of the spine) or scoliosis (curved spine)

Hip Bursitis symptoms include:
1) Hip Pain:
- When moving
- When sleeping on the hip side is affected

Hip Bursitis Treatments
According to our hip bursitis specialist clinic, treatment for bursitis usually involves resting the joint as much as possible. Our doctor may recommend anti-inflammatory medications for hip bursitis as it helps to reduce the inflammation at the hip joint and to relieve pain and swelling.
Our hip bursitis specialist clinic may recommend exercising the area once your pain decreases. This helps prevent muscle atrophy and to help build strength in the area. Hip bursitis may affect one ability to function normally. If so, hip bursitis physiotherapy maybe recommended to facilitate hip bursitis recovery.
If these treatments don’t help, you may need to have fluid taken out of the bursa. Hip bursitis injection may also be recommended to reduce the pain and swelling and it has been the most effective treatment for hip bursitis.
For self medicated hip bursitis, use an ice pack on the area to reduce swelling. During this time, be sure to avoid activities that make symptoms worse.
If hip bursitis continues even after conservative hip bursitis treatment, hip bursitis surgery may be needed to remove the bursa. Surgery is rarely needed to treat bursitis.
