What are some ways to exercise if you have hip bursitis?

Rhythmic exercises: Rhythmic exercises that do not create excessive stretch on the outer part of the hip will generally not cause any pain. Swimming is one example. Stretching the low back and it band should lessen the stress across the hip bursa.

See details: If both hips are involved the pain may be originating in the lower back and not in the bursa. It is impossible to tell without a history and exam. Therefore speak with your doctor or see an orthopedist for this issue.
