TROCHANTERIC BURSITIS

1. Any imbalance or dysfunction of the hip muscles can result in abnormal ITB motion and trochanteric bursitis.

2. Tenderness to palpation directly over the greater trochanter or immediately posterior to it, weakness of the gluteus medius and hip external rotators.

3. Sometimes A/W lateral snapping hip syndrome.

4. Management - rest, ice, analgesia, ITB stretches (if no hip abductor or external rotator weakness), corticosteroid injection.
