The bursa is a small fluid filled sac situated at the lateral side of the hip joint which reduces friction between the tendon and the bone. This can become inflamed or irritated due to a direct blow or too much stress on the tissue.
Signs & symptoms:
- Pain on the outer side of the hip
- May radiate down the leg
- Aggravated by walking running or climbing stairs
- Pain when lying on the affected side
The aim of physiotherapy is to reduce the inflammation by addressing the underlying cause of the problem.
