Causes of bursitis include direct impact, such as a fall, repetitive movements, such as in running, biomechanical issues, or muscle weakness.
What is it?
Hip Bursitis is the inflammation of the trochanteric bursa, on the outside of the hip by the greater trochanter, the gluteus medius bursa, located between the gluteus medius muscle and the greater trochanter, the iliopsoas bursa, located at the front of the hip, or the ischial bursa by the hamstring tendons.
Common Signs & Symptoms:
Common symptoms include pain on the outside of the hip that gradually worsens, an increase in pain during running, or stair climbing activities, and tenderness at the site of inflammation.
Assessment methods involve evaluating pain levels and location, testing strength and range of motion limitations, observing and palpating for tenderness or inflammation, and collection of patient history.
