Trochanteric Bursitis

Conquer Hip Hitch with Braybrook Physio & Allied Health Clinic: Ditch the Trochanteric Bursitis Blues!

Feeling like your hip is throwing a tantrum with every step? You might be grappling with trochanteric bursitis, a sneaky culprit behind that outer hip pain. But fear not, fellow movers and shakers! At Braybrook Physio & Allied Health Clinic, we’re the hip whisperers, ready to guide you back to pain-free days.

The Bursal Blues

Picture a tiny fluid-filled sac on your hip bone, called a bursa. Its job? Smoothing things out for the muscles and tendons there. But overuse, a bad fall, or even slouching can lead to inflammation – that’s trochanteric bursitis in a nutshell.

Symptoms of Trochanteric Bursitis

Here’s how this hip troublemaker might make its presence known:

  • Pain and tenderness: A dull ache or sharp twinge on the outer hip, especially when lying on that side or climbing stairs.
  • Stiffness and weakness: Moving your hip feels like wading through molasses, and even reaching for your socks becomes a struggle.
  • Sleepless nights: Sleeping comfortably on the affected side? Forget it! This pain loves to crash your slumber party

From Rest to Rise

Conquering Trochanteric Bursitis involves a two-pronged attack

Calming the Inflammation

  • Rest and Ice: Give your hip a break and let the cooling power of ice reduce swelling and discomfort.
  • Physiotherapy TLC: Our skilled physiotherapists will utilise techniques like:
    • Pain management: Ice, heat, ultrasound, or even dry needling can melt away that pesky pain.
    • Soft tissue mobilisation: Gentle massage and stretching loosen tight muscles and ease pressure on the bursa.
    • Strengthening exercises: Building strong muscles around your hip joint gives it the support it needs to thrive.
    • Balance and proprioception training: Improve your awareness of your body in space and prevent future flare-ups.

Building Strength and Resilience

Once the inflammation calms, we’ll equip you with personalised exercises to:

  • Restore hip mobility: Get those muscles gliding smoothly again with gentle stretches and controlled movements.
  • Strengthen surrounding muscles: A strong and stable hip joint is your best defence against future pain.
  • Posture perfect: We’ll help you ditch bad habits and adopt proper posture, keeping your hip happy and aligned.
