Here are a few points on how hip bursitis affects you and how we can help.

What Is Hip Bursitis?

Some people confuse hip bursitis with arthritis because the conditions often present with similar levels of discomfort. However, hip bursitis is different because, unlike arthritis, hip bursitis is a condition with temporary symptoms that can be reversed. Arthritis is gradual wear-and-tear on the joints, and the damage can be so severe in some situations that it may require total joint replacement to restore mobility to the area.

Also, hip bursitis typically manifests as a byproduct of overusing your hip joints, causing painful inflammation in the bursa sacs of your hips.

What Causes Hip Bursitis?

Many activities can cause symptoms of hip bursitis to develop. Physical activities that involve heavy use of the hips can eventually lead to hip bursitis symptoms. Some activities that can cause hip bursitis can include

  • Running
  • Deep squats
  • Cycling
  • Cardio
  • Tilting exercises

Prolonged repetition of these activities can cause swelling, stiffness, and difficulty walking if left unchecked.

Treating Hip Bursitis

One of the best ways to help relieve pain related to hip bursitis is to give your hips rest. Many healthcare professionals provide patients with crutches to help take pressure off the hips. For many cases of hip bursitis, a combination of rest, support, medication, and physical therapy is enough to help some patients feel their best. In other cases, more aggressive strategies may be necessary to help get your hip pain under control.
