What is Hip and Knee Bursitis?

A bursa is a small, jelly-like sac filled with fluid. By providing a cushion between bones and soft tissues such as tendons and muscles, bursae help reduce friction around joints and enable free movement. Bursae can be found throughout the body, near most major joints, including the hip and knee.


Hip bursitis is typically the result of inflammation and irritation in one of two major bursae in the hip. One covers the bony point of the hip bone (greater trochanter). Inflammation of this bursa is known as trochanteric bursitis. The other (iliopsoas bursa) is located on the inside, or groin side, of the hip. Although inflammation of this bursa is sometimes referred to as hip bursitis also, the pain is located in the groin area.


Common Hip and Knee Bursitis Symptoms

Below is a short list of symptoms that patients experience when they are diagnosed with hip and knee bursitis:

  • Pain with walking up stairs
  • Pain when kneeling down
  • Tenderness, warmth, or swelling in the overlying area of the knee
  • Pain that gets worse during activities such as getting out of a car
  • Pain when you press in or on the outside of the hip
  • Pain when lying on the affected side
  • Pain on the outside of the hip and thigh or in the buttock


About Our Hip and Knee Bursitis Solutions

Physical therapy solutions would most likely include range of motion exercises, lower extremity strengthening exercises, stretching, soft tissue mobilization, myofascial release, modalities, and activity specific training.


Chiropractic management utilizes manual therapy and therapeutic exercise in an effort to diminish pain and inflammation, promote healing, improve strength, enhance flexibility and control functional stresses. A cortisone injection into the inflamed bursa may help reduce pain and accelerate the rehabilitation.


Surgery is rarely needed for hip bursitis. However, if all nonsurgical treatments have been tried and it remains inflamed and painful, your physician may recommend surgical removal of the bursa.
