Most exercises okay: Avoid exercises that will cause your legs to cross in any way, even if just a little. This causes tension over the greater trochanter. Also avoid any exercise that causes any increase in pain, as this could suggest increasing inflammation. Stretch your it band and include massage on your lower it band to loosen. Hope this helps!
