3 ways to treat Hip Bursitis at home in Geelong

Posted on October 11, 2021 in News

Hip Bursitis is one of the most common conditions that we see in our Geelong clinic, especially amongst our female patients.

The Bursa is a small fluid-filled sac that sits between muscles, tendons and bones. (show in the diagram)

Bursitis is an inflammatory condition, this inflammation and swelling process causes the bursa to become enlarged which increases rubbing and friction between the Bursa and the muscle/tendons surrounding it. 



The pain can be debilitating and can affect sleep and daily movement. Recovery is dependent on the patient reducing aggravating movement, receiving regular (chiro) treatment and following an at home care plan.

There can be various causes of Hip Bursitis including.

  • Hormonal changes i.e. menopause and pregnancy.
  • Overuse or inappropriate training can cause abnormal stress of the bursa, leading to inflammatory change.
  • Changes in normal biomechanics play a part in your risk of Bursitis
