Trochanteric Bursitis Treatment – Hip Pain
Brad Beer shares some information in this video about Trochanteric Bursitis, which is in short inflammation of the bursa, or a fluid filled sac that sits on the side of the hip. Physiotherapy as well as cortisone injections can relieve the symptoms.
Hey guys, Brad from POGO Physio. Just wanted to share a quick tip today regarding hip pain, specifically hip pain on the side of your hip. There’s a condition called Trochanteric Bursitis which is in short, inflammation of the bursa, or a fluid filled sac that sits on the side of the hip and the classic tell-tale sign for Trochanteric Bursitis is evening pain when you lay on your hip of the night. If you’re getting pain laying on your side, that’s consistent, there’s a fair chance you may have Trochanteric Bursitis. There’s quite a few things that can be done therapeutically to help Trochanteric Bursitis. There’s physiotherapy and there’s also, at times, ultrasound guided cortisone injections, which actually go into the bursa and relieve symptoms really well. If you’re getting night-time pain, see your local physiotherapist and we’ll put you on the right track. Cheers.
Yours in running,
