Hip pain – bursitis

Aha, this is what my sore hip is. I didn’t quite catch the name when I was at the GP, “trochanteric bursitis”, sounds like a new fangled gearbox!


When patients refer to hip pain, sometimes they are experiencing trochanteric bursitis and care must be taken during history taking and physical examination to elicit the exact source of symptoms. (Hip joint pain is usually experienced in the groin, sometimes radiating towards the knee, and less frequently in the buttock. Patients often point to the upper buttock area or lateral hip when describing ‘hip’ pain. This often suggests that the pain originates in the low back or trochanteric bursa.)
