Do you suffer from hip pain?, do you have the pain when you are standing, walking or lying down? I can empathize with you, I suffered with hip bursitis pain for three years until I found out how to fix hip bursitis. People are under the impression that they have to suffer the hip pain or take painkillers and hope that the pain will go away, from my experience hip bursitis pain doesn’t go away easily if ever.The bursae inside the hip keep becoming inflamed, so the only way to fix hip bursitis pain is to tackle the underlying cause and that means tackling the inflammation first.
What causes Bursitis of the hip?
Bursitis of the hip is caused when the bursae become swollen leading to pain. Your ligaments, muscles and tendons are cushioned by fluid filled sacs called Bursae, they help your muscles, tendons and ligaments to slide easily over bone. The bursae become swollen typically as a result of physical activity, running , playing competitive sports such as football, rugby and soccer, bursitis can sometimes develop because of infection or it can be complication of rheumatoid arthritis or gout. The area around the bursae becomes very painful and tender, swelling affecting bursae of the hip is called trochanteric bursitis.
How the bursae become injured and inflamed.
Repetitive lifting, repetitive moving of the knees or hips, repetitive reaching, running, bursae can also be injured following a bang, sudden impact or a fall. People who are working with horses do get hip bursitis pain, by sitting in a horse saddle coupled with the movement of the horse you are putting a lot of pressure on your back, hip knee and ankle joints. This repetitive action can cause inflammation in the bursae surrounding these areas and cause swelling and pain.
I recommend that you get a proper diagnosis because there may be other issues such as an uneven hip or piriformis syndrome (muscle spasm) in cases like these the treatment will be much different, some people have found relief from massage therapy (it hurts like hell) yoga and stretching exercises are also useful.
Symptoms of hip bursitis
Some people complain of nerve pain and numbness down the outside of the leg all the way to the foot, walking or running for any sustained length length of time make the pain worse. This may be diagnosed as Trochanteric bursitis, again inflammation of the bursa at a part of the hip called the greater trochanter, probably the most common cause of hip pain.
Others complain of hip and buttock pain when sitting, this is sometimes known as weaver’s bottom.This is Ischial bursitis and refers to inflammation and swelling in the Ischial bursa area. This is located in between the underlying bony extension of the pelvic hip bone and the gluteus maximus muscle.
People with hip bursitis typically experience pain and tenderness over the side of the hip,lying down on the sore hip may cause a sharp increase in pain.
Pain spreading or radiating
At the beginning pain may be primarily located on the outside of the hip, however over a period of time it will spread or radiate from the hip and down to other parts of the body for example lower back,groin or buttock. This may not always be the case some people have complained of pain to only as far as the knee area.
If you have a cut ,bacteria can enter and find it’s way into the bursae causing infection (Septic bursitis) our bodies immune system usually takes care of inflammation, if the immune system is compromised or weakened the bursae can become infected, people who are on chemotherapy fall into this category.
Arthritis of the hip
Hip bursitis can sometimes be confused with Arthritis, both conditions cause pain and swelling, the difference is that the pain and swelling from Arthritis is caused in the knee and hip joint but Hip Bursitis is caused by inflammation in the bursae (fluid filled sacs) surrounding the hip area. Both conditions can be equally painful so it is important to get a proper diagnosis before you try to fix hip bursitis.
Hip bursitis treatment options
This would be very rare,but there are specific types of chronic hip bursitis that may need surgery. some of the more typical types of surgery are mentioned below, symptoms are taken into account and other factors before these procedures are considered.
Bursectomy is an incision at the top of the hip, the affected bursa is removed, some physicians will use a treatment called an arthroscopic bursectomy to lower the risk of complication and shorten the healing time.
Osteotomy is a cutting of the greater protruding trochanter bone (5-10 mm) in an effort to reduce stress and friction causing the hip pain
Iliotibial band release and tendon repair is a surgical correction to the tendon,the pain is caused by problems with the iliotibial band release associated with greater trochanteric pain syndrome.The iliotibial band is lengthened to reduce friction, in addition the tendon is repaired and reattached if necessary to the greater trochanter.This type of surgery is usually done in tandem with a bursectomy.
Most doctors will prescribe prescription pain-killers to reduce the inflammation and to relieve the pain, however these NSAIDs (non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs) do have reported side effects, common NSAIDs
Side effects of NSAIDs
Taking pain-killers over a short period is safe, however side effects do happen if large doses are taken over an extended period of time, month after month, year after year.Mild side effects will dissipate, the more serious effects will need medical attention. The most common side effects involve
- Dizziness and headaches
- Ringing ears
- Allergic reaction
- Kidney,liver problems,NSAIDs are not advisable if you have kidney or liver problems
- Ulcers in the stomach
- Aspirin has been known to cause bleeding in some cases
- Heartburn and stomach pain
- Swollen legs
