Trochanteric Bursitis

October 21, 2007

45 years old patient, complaining of pain in both hips. The pain started 1 year ago, and it was only on the left side in the beginning. The area is red and warm. She was diagnosed with a sciatica and rheumatoid arthritis as well. She was treated with Ibuprofen for 1 year without any obvious improvement. What is the possible cause of that hip pain and how you are going to treat it???

Trochanteric bursitis is inflammation of the bursa (fluid-filled cavity near a joint) at the point of the hip known as the greater trochanter. When this bursa becomes irritated or inflamed, it causes pain in the hip. This is a common cause of hip pain. More about trochanteric bursitis plus a good simple animation here.

    Cure of tendon injuries is essentially practical. Using non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications coupled with Physical Therapy, rest, orthotics or braces, and moderate return to workout is a common therapy. An acronym used to list the remedial treatments in fixing tendinitis is “RICE”: Rest, Ice, Compress, and Elevate. Resting assists in the prevention of further injury to the tendon. Ice is effective at soothing pain, restricting too much swelling, and stimulating blood circulation after the fact. Compression and elevation both perform similarly to ice in their ability to restrict excessive, unnecessary inflammation.Initial recovery is commonly within 2 to 3 days and full recuperation is within 4 to 6 week.Visit my site to learn more about bursitis treatment

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog.

    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Appreciate it
