In brief: Rest, meds, PT, u/s

Tendinitis/bursistis of hip often results of over use/trauma and the first thing to do is take it easy/rest a bit.
Antiinflammatory meds such as aleve/motrin may help. Physical therapy/gentle stretching/rom exercises. Iontophoresis ultrasounds therapy, topical meds etc...May help quite a bit as well. So, if doing on your own not enough, consult doc for possible injection. Good luck.
