Minimally-Invasive Hip Bursitis Pain Treatment

Hip bursitis is a common condition that causes inflammation of the bursae, small fluid-filled sacs that cushion the hip joint. At Pinnacle Surgical Orthopedics, Dr. Baxter is experienced in diagnosing and treating hip bursitis to provide relief and improve your quality of life.

Common symptoms of hip bursitis may include:

  • Pain or tenderness on the outside of the hip
  • Pain that worsens with walking, running, or climbing stairs
  • Limited range of motion in the hip joint
  • Swelling or redness in the affected area

Our experienced team at Pinnacle Surgical Orthopedics offers a range of effective treatments for hip bursitis, including:

  • Rest and activity modification: Avoiding activities that aggravate the condition can help reduce symptoms.
  • Physical therapy: Targeted exercises and stretches to strengthen the hip muscles, improve flexibility, and reduce pain.
  • Medications: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or corticosteroid injections can help alleviate pain and reduce inflammation.
  • Assistive devices: The use of crutches or a cane can help reduce pressure on the affected hip.
  • Minimally invasive surgery: In severe cases, arthroscopy may be recommended to remove inflamed tissue or repair damaged bursae.

If you're experiencing symptoms of hip bursitis, our expert team at Pinnacle Surgical Orthopedics is here to help. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and explore personalized treatment options tailored to your specific needs.
