What is Hip Bursitis?

Bursae (plural) are small, fluid-filled sacs that are located near joints throughout the body, helping to provide cushion and reduce friction between bones and soft tissues. Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa (singular) or bursae. Bursitis of the hip is relatively common, especially in women and older adults. Common symptoms of hip bursitis include:

  • Pain around the buttock or the outside of the thigh or hip
  • Discomfort when pressing or laying on the outside of the hip
  • Pain that worsens when walking up stairs or standing up from a seated position

What Does Hip Bursitis Treatment Entail?

Hip bursitis treatment typically involves conservative measures, such as:

  • Physical therapy
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Anti-inflammatory injections
  • Activity modifications

While most people are able to reduce hip pain through these methods, surgery to remove an inflamed or infected bursa may be recommended if conservative treatments fail to improve hip bursitis symptoms.

The board-certified orthopedic doctors at Louisville Orthopaedic Clinic offer a full range of conservative hip bursitis treatment options, as well as surgical care from surgeons who utilize minimally invasive and muscle-sparing techniques to achieve the best possible outcomes. Don’t allow hip pain to keep you sidelined—visit one of our locations in the Louisville area to receive the specialized orthopedic treatment you need to feel your best.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr Goodin has replaced both of my knees this year with excellent results. He and Carly listen to my concerns, act promptly and work hard to make this journey the best it can be. Carly and Dr Goodin both have GREAT bedside manner and I feel I am in expert care with them.

Dr. Richardson is the best! He did shoulder decompression surgery for me many moons ago and has continued to treat me for other shoulder, arm, and back issues since. I would recommend him to anyone!
