Treatments

  • Anti-inflammatory medicine

    Your doctor may recommend you take an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication – such as ibuprofen – to help relieve pain and swelling. Corticosteroid injections are also sometimes used to help relieve bursitis symptoms.

  • RICE method

    You should use the RICE method, which includes rest, ice, compression, and elevation, while you’re at home.

  • Physical therapy

    In most cases, your health care provider will prescribe rehabilitation therapy. Our physical therapists establish a unique plan of care that includes specific interventions for your condition and situation to help alleviate pain and improve mobility.

  • Surgery

    If other treatments have been unsuccessful in treating your hip bursitis, surgery may be needed.

Tests

  • Physical examination

    Your doctor will conduct a complete physical examination – along with collecting your health history – to help make the diagnosis.

  • Imaging tests

    Your doctor may order an ultrasound or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to assess your bursitis.

  • Lab tests

    Your doctor may order a blood test or analysis of fluid from the inflamed hip bursa to help determine the cause of your joint inflammation and pain.
