Here are some ways that we can help and how you can determine which treatment is best for you.

What Causes Hip Bursitis?

Hip bursitis can be a painful experience, but understanding some causes can help determine the best strategy for controlling the pain. One of the typical causes of hip bursitis is the overuse of the hip. Being overweight and participating in rigorous activities can create additional strain on the hip joint, causing pain. 

Another cause of hip bursitis is rheumatoid arthritis. This condition occurs when the immune system begins to attack healthy tissues. Many experts still debate why this occurs, but some think this happens because of genetics and stress.

Risk Factors for Hip Bursitis

Although preventing hip bursitis is challenging, understanding the risk factors play a crucial role in getting treated. Smoking is one of the most significant contributors to the development of hip bursitis. The tobacco from cigarette smoke robs your bones of essential nutrients, leading to rheumatoid arthritis, a byproduct of hip bursitis.

Another factor that plays a role in hip bursitis is diabetes. Unmanaged diabetes can lead to issues with circulation, causing compromised blood flow. When this happens, your joints can suffer because they do not receive the nutrients they need to regenerate, causing them to wear down over time.

Other risk factors for hip bursitis include:

  • Calcium deposits
  • Leg-length inequality
  • Spine disease
  • Hip injuries
