Hip Bursitis Treatment in Burbank
Hip bursitis causes pain over the outside of the upper thigh and Treatment can be had right here in Burbank. The bursa is a fluid filled sac that allows for an efficient, gliding motion between two surfaces. When this bursal sac becomes inflamed, it can’t perform as it was meant to causing pain. Our Chiropractor explains below his approach to Hip Bursitis, treatment, and the symptoms.
Causes: Overuse, trauma, repetitive or improper movements and/or motion, walking, running, climbing, joint restrictions, or improper biomechanics of the hip, low back, or legs. Tight muscles or poor biomechanics can lead to insufficient joint movement and friction to a particular area
Symptoms: Swelling, pain, and tenderness usually occur in the bursa due to some type of physical activity or trauma to the area. Once this bursa becomes inflamed, it can elicit a pain response. The hip bursa can also potentially become infected and lead to more serious injuries and eventually arthritis depending on how much stress is placed on the region.
Treatment: Rest, ice, therapeutic ultrasound, myofascial release, and stretching can all help alleviate the pain caused from hip bursitis. Releasing tension from the hip can help decrease inflammation, improve circulation, and decrease pressure on the joint so that it can function as it should.
Rehab: Strengthening, mobilization, and stabilization will all help support the hip region, flush out any type of inflammation and improve proper function of the joint.
