Hip Bursitis Treatment in Sarasota and Physical Therapy
Let’s begin by discussing the hip joint and then we will continue with Hip Bursitis Treatment at Back In Motion, Sarasota Physical Therapy. Hip bursitis can be an extremely painful & debilitating condition. People involved in motion that is repetitive such as swimming, running or bicycling are more likely to experience bursitis.
Bursitis involves the inflammation and swelling of the bursa sac which is a protective sac that surrounds joints. The bursa sac is a small cushion-like sac containing fluid. The hip bursa is located over the outside part of the hip bone (also known as the trochanter).
A bursa sac is also present in other joints like the knee, shoulder, and heel. When the bursa becomes irritated and inflamed, the pain is usually sharp and intense.
Although hip bursitis is usually sharp and intense, the pain of hip bursitis can be dull and achy. It may also spread to the buttocks or lower back. The inside of the hip (towards the groin area) can also become painful.
A physician may decide to treat the pain and discomfort of bursitis with medication. At our Physical Therapy clinic in Sarasota Florida, we like to get to the root cause of the problem.
