Hip Bursitis Treatment
Physiotherapy First is pleased to offer hip bursitis treatments at our wellness centre in Brampton. This condition can be painful and uncomfortable if it is left untreated. However, the condition is manageable with physiotherapy treatments.
What is Hip Bursitis?
When the bursae in the hip are inflamed, they can cause hip bursitis. The bursae are in the joints in between soft tissue and bone. They are filled with fluid to help provide cushioning and reduce friction when moving. In areas where the bursae become overused, they are irritated from repeated movements which cause inflammation.
Hip bursitis can occur in anyone, regardless of age. Those involved in sports with a lot of running or hip movements, like soccer, hockey, or basketball, can be more prone to developing hip bursitis, especially if they experience a sports-related injury in the hip area.
