What Causes Hip Bursitis?

The hip bursa is a fluid-filled sac in the hip joint that helps reduce friction inside the joint. When this bursa becomes irritated, it can cause inflammation within and around the bursa. This may be due to a specific trauma or, more commonly, repetitive movements causing excessive friction within the joint.

Hip bursitis can happen at any stage of life but is more common the older we get. Understanding why bursitis has occurred as you progress in your journey is essential to help protect it from becoming inflamed in the future.

Common Symptoms of Hip Bursitis

  • Pain along the outside of the hip, knee, and thigh.
  • Local tenderness and swelling at the outside of the hip bone.
  • Difficulty walking or running secondary to pain.
  • Deep ache in the hip joint.
  • Difficulty laying on the affected hip.

Treatment for Hip Bursitis

Treating hip bursitis first involves decreasing the inflammation within the bursa. This may include manual therapy, passive modalities, and mobility-focused exercises. It is also important to reduce any movements that may be causing excessive friction in the hip.

As the bursa starts to heal, strengthening the muscles around the hip and abdomen will be necessary. This will help ensure you have a strong base of support and decrease any excessive friction that may be happening. Your physical therapist will work with you through each healing stage to ensure you get the proper exercises and treatment as you heal. The physical therapists at Pro Staff are experts in treating all variations of hip bursitis and will help you get back to feeling like your usual self.

How long will it take for me to get better?

Every hip is different when it comes to recovery. Your healthcare team will work with you throughout the process to ensure you recover as quickly as possible. Each timeline for healing is a little different and depends on several factors specific to your case. Once you are evaluated, your physical therapist will better understand how long it will take to heal.
