Bursitis of the Hip (Trochanteric Bursitis)
This is an irritation or swelling of the trochanteric bursa. This small, fluid-filled sac is found on the outer side of the femur. It acts as a cushion for the iliotibial band, a thick tendon in your leg.
Trochanteric bursitis can be caused by repetitive stress. It can be caused by a fall or a hard blow to the outer side of your hip. It can be caused by poor posture. It can also be caused by certain diseases and conditions
The most common symptom of this type of bursitis is pain on the outer side of your hip. It may be sharp, or it may be a dull ache. It may spread to your thigh and buttock. This pain may feel worse during physical activity that involves your hip. It may also feel worse when you lie on the affected side of your body.
Treatment options include rest, medications, and physical therapy as well as chiropractic care and massage. If these methods are not helpful, you may benefit from an image-guided injection of corticosteroids or stem cell injections.
