Is riding a recumbent exercise bike good for hip bursitis?

I don't advocate that type of exercise if you have active painful hip bursitis. Get it treated by your physician or orthopedic specialist before performing that repetitive activity of your hip joints.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

I feel more information is required to make a informed diagnosis. A limb length difference or pelvic rotation can cause hip bursitis if you’re standing or walking any length of time
