Hip Bursitis Pain?

Physical Therapy Can Help!

Hip bursitis can cause debilitating pain limiting your ability to move, especially when exercising and getting active! If you suffer from hip bursitis, physical therapy may be the solution you’re looking for. By combining expert physical therapy treatment with targeted exercises, your life can quickly return to normal and stay there, without any flare-ups of hip bursitis pain! 

What Causes Hip Bursitis?

Hip bursitis is a painful and debilitating condition causing inflammation of one or more of your hip bursae. The bursae are small, fluid-filled sacs that lie just under your skin in places where your muscles and tendons slide over bone. Hip bursitis occurs when these little sacs become inflamed and irritated, causing pain in your hips. It can also cause hip swelling and stiffness, making movement difficult.

What Are The Symptoms of Hip Bursitis?

As opposed to arthritis, hip bursitis is not caused by a breakdown of joint cartilage or bone. Instead, it results from inflammation and pain within your hip’s bursae—the small sacs located near each muscle and tendon. The pain associated with hip bursitis tends to be located in your upper inner thigh or groin region, but it can also spread down into your knee.

How is Hip Bursitis Treated With Physical Therapy?

In most cases, hip bursitis is treated with rest and cold compresses. However, we recommend physical therapy to help you recover and avoid re-injury. Physical therapy for hip bursitis will focus on stretching exercises to increase flexibility of muscles around your hips as well as your torso. It may also involve strengthening exercises to regain strength in these muscles.
