Trochanteric Hip Bursitis Symptoms
General Trochanteric Bursitis Breakdown
Relieving the symptoms of bursitis initially focuses on keeping the pressure off the bursa and resting your hip. This can be difficult when you have to carry on with daily activities, but resting whenever you can is recommended. During your recovery you will probably have to modify or avoid the activities that stress your bursa until your pain and inflammation settle. Most cases of trochanteric bursitis eventually go away on their own within 1 to 3 months.
Treatments should involve decreasing swelling, relieving stress on the hip joint, correcting any bio-mechanical dysfunction (uneven leg length, bone spur, etc.), treating scar tissue, and then restoring strength and movement in your leg and hip. Surgery may be required if your bursa irritation is a result of a bone formation problem, such as a bone spur.
Should you seek medical attention?
This is up to your discretion; however any continued discomfort in your groin or pelvis area should be investigated. If you continue to experience the iliopsoas tendinitis or bursitis symptoms and have tried the suggested conservative treatments (see conservative treatments for iliopsoas tendinitis or bursitis), it is recommended that you seek professional medical attention. If you experience any of the symptoms noted below it is recommended that you seek immediate attention:
- Severe pain and tenderness.
- Problems or swelling in or around the genitalia (penis, scrotum, testicles).
- A cut, lump or bulge or bleeding in your groin area.
- Major hip/thigh movement problems causing a severe limp.
- Urinary problem.
- A groin rash.
- Postoperative problem after groin operation.
- Exposure to an STD.
- Groin pain has not improved after 1 week, where symptoms are more severe or frequent.
- Signs of shock (light headedness, restlessness, shallow breathing, sweating, weakness, nausea.)
