A-Z of Injuries

Hip & Thigh - Hip Bursitis

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.
