Bursitis (Hip)

Hi
I've got bursitis in my hip.  I've had it on and off for years.  I've had cortisone injections and am doing my stretches but it won't shift.  I've tried not exercising but it still won't go.  I can still squat but it's more the constant ache (right round into my bum!) when I'm sitting or trying to sleep.  It's quite bad, I nearly went through the roof when the Doc touched it!  Anyone had it or know any other treatment ideas - it's doing my head in!!!
 
Thanks in advance.
 
Take care.

    Hi buddy, I have not had this myself however I might suggest that whatever you have tried hasn't actually addressed the cause which is probably excessive loads in that area.
     
    Many treatments address the symptoms rather than the actual cause. So until you know what has mechanically caused it it will be difficult to know what you need to do.
     
    The main focus should be finding out why there is excessive loading in that area to cause the bursa to complain and then remove that loading.
    It could be a number of things from muscle spasm, nerve immobility causing tension, joint stiffness in certain areas.
    Find a professional who can measure your mechanics and that may well find the answer.
    Good luck with it sounds nasty and very frustrating mate

    I too have the same problem except my pain is right on the side of the hip and when it hurts even just touching the area is awful, also when i have been sitting for a while or going up stairs is painful too.
     
    I Cant squat at all at the moment and i have just been using the leg press which has been bearable, but i also dropped deadlifting out this week as it aggravated it last time.
    It guts me as the 2 power moves that i really want in my routine are problematic, and my back routine today felt lacking without any big deads in it!
     
    Rachfit, when you say a professional, are you referring to a physio? Or a biomechanics coach?
     
    I did foam roll my hip the other day after legs and i must admit it did help once my eyes stopped watering and the screams subsided!!!

    For symptomatic advice and treatment a physio, for getting to the root cause probably a Biomechancs coach. BC's are not medically trained but they do understand how to de-load excessive pressure on the internal structures through simple exercise techniques.
    It is understanding how it happened in the first place that is going to make recovery more long term.

    Hi guys
     
    Thanks for the advice - the pain down the side of my leg is agony to touch.  I also find deadlifting and hamstring curls aggrevates it.  I always get it when I'm running which I would avoid but unfortunately I have to do a bleep test every now and then at work (and the short sharp turns set me off).  Anyway, hope to see a physio soon so will se what she can do.
     
    Take care
