Lateral hip pain goes by many names, it can be variously described as Trochanteric Bursitis, Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome, Gluteal Tendonitis, Gluteal Tendinopathy, Gluteal Pain Syndrome and others.
It is characterised by a pain over the side of the upper part of femur (thigh bone). The pain can radiate down to the knee, into the buttocks or into the groin
It can be sore at night in bed, both when you lie on that side and even on the opposite side.
Pain on standing after sitting is common and car or train journeys can be very uncomfortable also.
Gluteal Tendinopathy is now thought of as one the primary cause of the pain as well as the bursitis. It is characterised by pain to the outside of the hip which may radiate down the outside of leg, or to the groin. It is often exacerbated by sitting or walking for long periods.
Gluteal Tendinopathy does not have to have an associated bursitis, but a trochanteric bursitis is rarely found without it.
TROCHANTERIC BURSITIS is a common diagnosis for people suffering with lateral hip pain.
The Greater Trochanter is a small outcrop of bone on the side of femur (upper leg bone).
Normally tissue slides painlessly over the top of this boney outcrop.
A bursa is small fluid filled sack that forms between tissues that glide over each other; they are normal, useful and common in the body.
Bursitis is when this sack becomes irritated and filled with inflammatory fluid.
The Trochanteric Bursa sits just over the Greater Trochanter.
Trochanteric Bursitis often found along with a GLUTEAL TENDINOPATHY
