Hip Pain- Trochanteric Bursitis

After a long cold winter- Finally, warmer weather is here. This time of year people become more active- getting outside walking, working in the yard, etc. Now is the time when you will see more complaints of lateral hip & thigh pain with difficulty laying on the painful side.

Trochanteric bursitis is a painful musculoskeletal condition that is found in patients with several precipitating conditions: Deconditioned pelvic/thigh muscles, Degenerative disc dis., Fibromyalgia and leg length discrepencies to name a few. These "flare ups" of trochanteric bursitis is commonly seen after patients have had days of increased activity and "week end warriors". Also, patients can have mild pain chronically with frequent episodes of acute pain from time to time.

Performing a Trochanteric Bursa injection in your office is a very effective method of alleviating the patients pain along with stretching exercises of the Illiotibial bands. Consider short course of PT for some.

With the correct training and Hands on practice, Nurse Practitioners in most states can provide these services to their patients suffering with Trochanteric Bursitis. We can provide this learning experience in our Joint & Trigger Point Injection Course.
