Treatment for trochanteric bursitis can include osteopathic techniques that focus on alleviating irritation and inflammation to restore range of motion and function while reducing hip pain, soreness, and los mobility.
Trochanteric Bursitis is one of the more common causes for hip pain and occurs when bursa in the hip become inflamed. Each of your hips contain two bursae – fluid-filled sacs that help to provide cushion between the body’s bones and its skin, muscles, tendons, and other soft tissue. There are two of these bursae located in each hip, one on the outside and one on the inside. This type of bursitis occurs when there is inflammation of the outside bursa.
Naturally, hip conditions of this kind can present many challenges, due to the hips’ vital role in mobility. When healthy, hips provide power and stability for a wide range of activities, including walking, running, crouching, and jumping. Bursitis can inhibit those movements and create both pain and weakness in the impacted area. Fortunately, osteopathic care can be an effective option for addressing hip conditions like bursitis.
Hip bursitis is most commonly caused by overuse, due to excessive walking, running, cycling, or other activities that rely on the hips. In many instances, the iliotibial band can tighten, rub against the bursa on the outside of the hip and cause inflammation. In addition to that common cause, other factors can include:
These injuries are more common among women, middle-aged patients, and seniors.
The primary symptom associated with this type of bursitis is pain at the bony part of the hip bone. Other symptoms may include:
