In brief: Most can return

The most common type of hip bursitis is trochanteric bursitis and occurs on the lateral (outside) side of the hip.
Iliopsoas bursitis occurs on the anterior (front) side of the hip. Most do well with relative rest, rehab. Focused on strengthening and stretching and anti-inflammatories. Injections, especially those done under ultrasound gudiance, tend to be effective. A high % return to running!
