Hip bursitis

I am an athlete and have been taking it easy for months due to my hip bursitis. I am eager to get back to working out as this injury has taken a toll on my sports performance, however my hip just refuses to heal. I have taken tons of advil, stayed off my feet as much as possible, and avoided exercises that aggravate my hip, but nothing is really making a difference. How do I find an effective way to heal my hip for good?

Hello!

The treatment of any bursitis depends on whether or not it is infected or not. If it is not infected you can try cortisone injection.

Your hip bursitis can often benefit by weight reduction, stretching exercises, and also by wearing proper footwear for all of your activities.

Infected bursitis (rare in the hip) requires further evaluation. Talk with an orthopedician.

Take care!
