Hip Bursitis

Hip bursitis can be extremely painful. Typically, it affects the fluid-filled bursa sacs that lie on top of the greater trochanter, a protuberance on the femur. As symptoms progress, pain may radiate down the outside of the thigh and occasionally to the buttock, groin, knee, and lower back. It may be painful to walk, climb stairs, lie down, or get out of a chair.

One can reduce the risk of developing hip bursitis by avoiding repetitive motions and reducing inflammation after exercising using ice packs, ibuprofen, or physical therapy. Our experienced physical therapists will work with you to increase your strength.

They will focus on various muscles including, the quadriceps, hamstrings, adductors, and gluteus muscles, which surround and stabilize your hips. Let us help you get your life back! Call us at 609-436-0366 or email us at to schedule your appointment today.
