Trochanteric bursitis

What is Trochanteric bursitis?



Trochanteric bursitis is inflammation of the trochanteric bursa, a small fluid filled sac located at the outer aspect of the hip, causing pain and reduced function.


What causes Trochanteric bursitis?



Trochanteric bursitis is commonly caused by repetitive stress placed on the trochanteric bursa during activity such as running, jumping, walking. Occasionally, trochanteric bursitis is caused by a direct blow to the point of the hip such as a fall onto a hard surface.


What are the symptoms/effects of trochanteric bursitis?



The main symptom of trochanteric bursitis is pain in the outer aspect of the hip, which may radiate down the outer aspect of the thigh as far as the knee. Pain may also be aggravated by side lying, running, jumping, climbing stairs, sitting cross legged, getting in and out of the car or walking.


Diagnosis of trochanteric bursitis



A thorough subjective and objective examination from a physiotherapist or doctor will confirm a diagnosis of trochanteric bursitis


Physiotherapy for trochanteric bursitis



At Manchester Physio, physiotherapy treatment will speed up your recovery and reduce the likelihood of it re-occurring.

Early physiotherapy treatment is vital to hasten your recovery and ensure success in the long-term.

Your physiotherapist at Manchester Physio will assess and identify the factors which have contributed to the condition. These factors will then be corrected by an individualised treatment program which may comprise of:
  • Ultrasound to accelerate healing
  • Stretches
  • Joint mobilisation
  • Ice or heat treatment
  • Exercises to improve strength, flexibility and core stability
  • Activity modification advice
  • Gradual return to activity program
A graduated flexibility and strengthening program of the surrounding muscles once pain has settled will ensure you get back to the activities you enjoy the most as soon as possible. Your physiotherapist at Manchester Physio will advise you on which exercises are the most appropriate for you when they should be commenced.

Physiotherapy treatment will reduce pain and inflammation, restore range of movement and muscle strength so that you can get back to your everyday activities as soon as possible.
