  • Hip Bursitis

    Bursae are small fluid-filled sacs that reduce friction between moving parts in your body’s joints. Hip bursitis is inflammation or irritation of one or more of the bursae (shown in blue) in your hip.

  • What is a Hip Bursitis

    Hip bursitis is a common condition. It is a painful condition involving the lateral aspect of the hip. The other name for this is lateral trochanteric pain syndrome.


    The way you know you have it is you obviously have pain in the side of your hip, but oftentimes people clasp their hip with their hand, forming the letter C. Other things that can mimic hip bursitis are hip conditions within the joint, even back conditions, and muscle conditions in that area.
