Betty-Lou from Edmonton asks: I have bursitis of my hip. What should I do?
Trochanteric bursitis is an inflammation of the bursa on the lateral (outside) aspect of the hip. It can hurt more with walking or lying on the affected side. Treatment options may include physiotherapy (see our Regional MSK Disorders page for some basic ones to start), anti-inflammatory if appropriate, and sometimes a cortisone injection into the bursa.
