Trochanteric Bursitis


What is Trochanteric Bursitis?

A common spot for bursitis is on the side of the hip. Here a large tendon passes over the bony bump on the side of the hip. The bony bump is called the Greater Trochanter. Inflammation in the bursa between the tendon and the greater trochanter is called Trochanteric Bursitis.

  • Stiffness in the hip joint


Causes of Trochanteric Bursitis

  • Friction of the bursa
  • A fall on the hips


Treatment for Trochanteric Bursitis


Self-Diagnose can bring more harm than treating it. It is good to know more about the injury but definitely not to the point of self-treatment.
