In brief: Steroid injection

Steroid injections into the bursa can help with trochanteric bursistis.
Physical therapy may also help. Recommend seeing your doctor to confirm diagnosis and discuss treatment options.

In brief: Muscle imbalance?

See your doc; assuming truly trochanteric bursitis, likely benefit from physical therapy.
Specific rx needs to handled by you and your md. Acetaminophen may help re: pain, doesn't affect inflammation though.
