What is Hip Bursitis? AKA Trochanteric Bursitis

And why is your bursitis not getting better?

In cases of bursitis of the hip, it is most commonly the trochanteric bursa that is causing the pain.

This structure is found on the outside of the hip and causes:

  • Pain on the outside of the hip
  • Pain climbing stairs and walking
  • Pain lying on that side in bed

There are often other structures involved such as the Gluteal tendon.  If these are not properly addressed, Gluteal Tendinopathy can develop and it can take several months for the problem to resolve.

It is common for people to have injections to the area without improvement and many people start to worry about arthritis in their hip.
