In brief: PT
There are many different bursae in the body.
Hip bursitis (greater trochanter) can be relieved with it band stretching, ice, nsaids, hip abductor strengthening, injection of steroid, and rarely a surgery. Shoulder bursitis can be relieved with physical therapy exercises (stretching and strengthening of the rotator cuff and shoulder blade stabilizing muscles), injections, nsaids, and surgery.
