Trochanteric bursitis, or inflammation of the trochanteric bursa, is a common cause of hip pain. The bursa is a fluid-filled sac which reduces friction and provides cushion between the tendons, bones, and muscles. It is located on the outside of your hip. Irritation or overuse or muscles and/or tendons can cause these sacs to become inflamed and cause pain with movement.
Under the guidance of ultrasound, a needle is injected at the site to administer a local anesthetic and steroid medication.
