I have had hip bursitis for a few years. Steroid injection helped for a little while.Could the bursitis be caused from my bad back?

In brief: Hip bursitis

Bursitis of the hip can be from running, falls, repetitive physical contact,biking, but I'm unsure that chronic back problems are a predisposing condition.
An orthopedic specialist is best qualified to answer this question and advise you.
