Varied approaches: You can use anti-inflammatory medications or local steorid injkection along with rest and physical therapy. Often avoidance of a particular activity that caused the bursitis is curative as well.

Dr. Douglas Linville II answered

Specializes in Orthopedic Spine Surgery

Hip bursitis: The cure is to find out what caused it: a limp, weak hip muscles, inflammatory condition, gout, medicine side effect (especially statins for cholesterol). An ingrown toenail causing a limp can do it. Herniated disc causing pain or weak hip abductors will do it. Quick fix is ice constantly for 48 hrs, nsaids, and if no better, steroid (shot or pak). If persistent, get checked.
