The junction between the spine and the lower limb has a complex muscular arrangement that requires thorough assessment and accurate exercise prescription to achieve the best results with treatment. Hip and pelvis injuries, occurring both through sport and regular day to day activities, can be quite disabling.

Trochanteric Bursitis

A bursa is a fluid filled sac that cushions muscle and tendon from bone. Trochanteric bursitis is when the bursa on the outside of your hip becomes inflamed and swollen, causing localised pain that may radiate towards your groin. The pain is aggravated by weightbearing activity such as walking and running. It is typically worse at night, especially when lying on the affected hip. It is also painful when getting up after prolonged sitting.
