Trochanteric Bursitis

Trochanteric bursitis

Trochanteric bursitis is a common problem that affects the hip. It causes pain and tenderness on the outside of the hip. The trochanteric bursa is a fluid-filled sac that is located between the hip and the tendons of the thigh, and for a number of reasons this bursa can become inflamed. Trochanteric bursitis is more common in women than in men and is most common in the middle aged or elderly.

The main symptoms of bursitis are pain, swelling and tenderness in the affected area.

How do we treat bursitis at the Mansfield Clinic?

The first step in treatment of bursitis is to use simple measures such as ice packs, painkillers and anti-inflammatory medication. 

If the swelling caused by bursitis is particularly severe, or it does not respond to simple treatment, steroid injections introduced into the inflamed bursa are another possible treatment option.
