Hip Bursitis Symptoms

The main symptom of Trochanteric Bursitis is pain at the point of the hip. The pain usually extends to the outside of the thigh area. In the early stages, the pain is usually described as sharp and intense. Later, the pain may become more of an ache and spread across a larger area of the hip.

Typically, the pain is worse at night, when lying on the affected hip, and when getting up from a chair after being seated for a while. It also may get worse with prolonged walking, stair climbing, or squatting. PREVENTION OF HIP BURSITIS: Although hip bursitis cannot always be prevented, there are things you can do to prevent the inflammation from getting worse.

• Avoid repetitive activities that put stress on the hips.

Lose weight if you need to.

• Get a properly fitting shoe insert for leg-length differences.

Maintain strength and flexibility of the hip muscles.
