Causes of hip bursitis symptoms
To explain what causes the symptoms of hip pain we must first explain the make up the hip joint.
Basically a bursae is a narrow fluid filled cushion or sac found where there is friction between a bone and the tissue surrounding that area, tissue like ligaments,muscles,tendons,and soft tissue.
We have two bursae in our hips,the problem with hip pain starts when these bursae become inflamed or irritated,one of the bursae surrounds the great trochanter,this is called a bony point of the hip bone.
When the trochanter becomes inflamed we call this trochanteric bursitis.The other bursa is found on the inside (where the groin is located) and we call this the iliopsoas bursa.
What causes hip and leg pain?
The parts of the body that we use frequently are legs,knees,feet,hands,eyes,ears,ankles,so it stands to reason that over time there will be a lot of wear and tear on these parts.
For example if a person was involved in sport that require a lot of running the hip, ankle and arm joints would be used a lot.
In fact you don’t have to be into sports to feel wear and tear on your joints,another example if you work in an office and you lean on your elbows a lot,or you work in a physical job which requires a lot of kneeling or lifting.
If you suffer an injury or trauma this will cause pain, other conditions like gout, infection, rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory arthritis can be described as the main causes of hip and joint pain.
Hip Bursitis risk factors
Bursitis is more common as we age,you can get it at a younger age also.
Work or hobbies, if you are in a job or you have a hobby that requires a lot of repetitive tasks which puts pressure on your joints the risk of contracting bursitis increases. Hip bursitis may never go away.
Conditions like gout, diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis do increase the risk of developing bursitis; knee and hip bursitis can develop if you are overweight.
7 Tips to reduce the risk of Bursitis
It is impossible to prevent most types of bursitis; however here are 7 tips to help reduce your risk.
1.How to lift: Always remember to bend your knees, reducing the stress on bursae.
2.Take breaks: When doing the same task over and over, remember to take regular breaks
3.Heavy loads: Try to use a wheeled cart instead of lifting the heavy load yourself.

Traditional treatment for hip bursitis
Usually our first port of call when we have symptoms of hip pain is to see the doctor. If your doctor diagnoses non infectious bursitis, he will usually prescribe pain killing medication; antibiotics.
Additionally the doctor may also recommend rest or an ice pack in the case of any swelling. What is uncommon is infectious bursitis, usually treated with aspirin, antibiotics or surgery.
When a bursa is not only inflamed but also infected, it is called septic bursitis. Unlike most cases of aseptic bursitis, septic bursitis is a potentially serious medical condition and prompt medical attention is advisable.
An estimated 20% of bursitis cases are septic.
A bursa may become infected if an infectious bacteria or other microorganism enters the bursa through a cut, scrape, puncture, bug bite or other means. It is possible to have septic bursitis without an obvious entry point on the skin; sometimes the origin of infection is unknown.
Medications and certain health conditions may suppress the immune system or affect blood circulation, in these cases people are more open to developing septic bursitis.
Some of these health conditions include COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder) diabetes, alcoholism, cancer, HIV/Aids or diabetes. Conditions like these can have a negative affect on the immune system and are more likely to develop septic bursitis.
What are symptoms of Septic Bursitis?
Typical symptoms of bursitis are swelling and localized pain at the joint, other indicators that it could be septic bursitis to look out for are;
- Very tender around the bursa
- Fever or chills
- Extreme redness and warmth on the skin surrounding the joint
It can be difficult to distinguish between septic and aseptic bursitis, a doctors visit is required for further investigation.
Doctor will conduct a thorough examination of the affected area and may take a sample of synovial fluid from the area, this is necessary in case the bursa fills with pus. The danger is that the pus could travel into the bloodstream and sepsis could develop.
