Hip Bursitis

What's Hip Bursitis?

Hip Bursitis also known as trochanteric bursitis causes hip pain due to swelling or irritation of one of the hip bursa (small fluid filled sacs) that cushion the hip joint hip bones, muscles and tendons which is caused by overuse (i.e. running/cycling), a direct impact injury to the hip or poor biomechanics.

Hip bursitis symptoms

Hip bursitis symptoms are: Outer hip pain sometimes radiating down into outside of thigh made worse during activities such as running, climbing stairs or getting out of chair and hip soreness to touch. Other hip bursitis conditions are: Ischial bursitis which causes pain in buttock area made worse on prolonged sitting, and Iliopsoas bursitis causing pain in front of hip and groin.

Hip bursitis treatment

Your physiotherapist will physically assess and test painful movements and muscle strength as part of your hip bursitis test, use hands on physiotherapy, shockwave therapy, dry needling, and taping. Assess biomechanics and advise re activity modifications. Provide hip bursitis exercises via our exercise prescription software Salaso to help alleviate your hip bursitis pain. Prescribe orthotics, foam roller and resistance bands.

Client Testimonials

Having been dogged with injury I decided to have a full prehab/FMS screen with Colette at Imokilly Physiotherapy and Sports Injury Clinic. My starting score was 12/21 which placed me in a high risk injury bracket but by doing my corrective exercises, I not only played through the whole season un-injured but I also got my score up to 17/21 by the end.

I had spent a significant amount of money elsewhere on unwearable orthotics, before coming to Imokilly Physiotherapy Clinic. The orthotics I got here are by far the most comfortable to wear, and I wouldn't put a pair of shoes on without them!

Having had a long long history of back-pain which was then managed surgically with a dynamic fusion I was nervous about commencing any exercise. My neurosurgeon recommended that I attend a physiotherapist-led clinical Pilates class and I was lucky to find Sarah. Her entire approach is aimed at individualised rehabilitation, namely the individual assessment, tailored exercise programmes, small classes and follow-up emails. The standard of Pilates service is far superior to a fitness-based drop in class, and hence ideal for those with injuries.

Chronic Achilles tendinopathy was limiting my ability to progress my marathon training and I knew that I had to tackle it properly to allow it to heal. Although it was frustrating to step back from training, I am now running painfree and hoping for a marathon PB
