Today we’ve had to do an impromptu adjustment due to some unforeseeable circumstances related to automobiles. So rather than interviewing Mary Carey today we are going to be going over Greater Trochanteric Bursitis.


So greater trochanteric bursitis, it’s a great diagnosis. It is the most common of the bursitises. This is pain experienced on the outside of the hip. This could be left or right. It is most common on individuals sixty years and over. We do see it younger on occasion. On a Cajun. We should have done Cajun chips, what were we thinking.


It is a very common diagnosis; unfortunately if you have pain on the outside of the hip most people will say you have greater trochanteric bursitis. There is often some differential diagnosis needed when you get a prescription for great trochanteric bursitis because that is not always the case (


We see it a lot. People who sit often and then stand up with pain in their hip. The pain can travel down the side to the knee almost looking like an iliotibial band issue ( at times. It is pretty common in patients who are compensating for osteoarthritis in the hip. So if you see somebody walking with a lateral shift or lateral lean that can create irritability. A lot of the times like tendonitis or other bursitis it is a result of a compensatory problem.


Other common chronic conditions with it are scoliosis, leg length discrepancy, and weakness of the hip musculature is a huge one in general. And then OA and RA, which you already mentioned. Overuse people who all of a sudden have discovered the stair master for their cardiovascular exercise are a target demographic. Or individuals who suddenly start exercising or doing a new activity.
