Bursae are small fluid-filled sacs that act as cushions between the muscles, tendons, and bones.
In this case they are located around the outside of the hipbone called the trochanter. The trochanter is a large knob that is part of the femur allowing for attachment of many of the hip muscles.
Inflammation of the hip bursae can cause hip pain in the outside, top, or inside of the thigh and hip.
We find that an imbalance of muscle and tendon function, strength, or tightness due to adhesions, scarring, or trigger points cause irritation to the hip bursae and prevent efficient sliding and cushioning of the tendons. This creates inflammation and hip pain: hip bursitis.
Through a variety of manual procedures we can successfully treat hip bursitis and alleviate your hip pain.
