Hip bursitis, or most commonly trochanteric bursitis, is when a bursa on the outside part of the hip becomes irritated and inflamed. A bursa is a fluid filled sac that is usually located around joints to help reduce friction of muscle tendons. In the case of hip bursitis, the bursa located around the point of your hip will become irritated, typically from overuse or trauma. The inflammation that occurs following this repetitive irritation can cause significant pain in this area.
Common symptoms of hip bursitis are sharp pain located on the outside part of the hip, pain when lying on the affected hip, pain with use of the hip joint (walking upstairs, running, biking, etc.).
The Chiropractors at Mountainview Chiropractic Center will assess the hip area as well as the surrounding structures to determine the appropriate treatment protocol for the patient.
The practitioners treat hip bursitis by:
- Chiropractic adjustments to restore normal joint motion
- Myofascial release to release adhesions in damaged tissue and take stress off the hip joint
- Rehabilitation exercises to strengthen the glute muscles
