Most Common Sports Injuries: Hip Bursitis
Hip bursitis causes pain over the outside of the upper thigh. The condition refers to a bursa, which is a fluid filled sac that makes it possible for efficient motion between two uneven surfaces. When the bursal sac over the outside of the hip becomes inflamed, it can’t do its job effectively, making it painful to move.
Causes: Hip bursitis is common in older individuals, but it also afflicts very active people on the younger side. Although you can get it from a hard impact to the hip, in many cases, it’s yet another example of an overuse injury, coming about from activities like running, cycling or walking long distances.
Rehab Tips: “Improving strength and coordination in the buttock and hip muscles enables the femur to move in the socket smoothly and can help reduce friction on the bursa,” Camp says.
