The Symptoms, Causes, Risk Factors and Treatment of Hip Bursitis

Hip bursitis is a condition where the bursa in the area of the hip called the greater trochanter becomes inflamed. The greater trochanter is the bony point of the hip. Both sexes can be affected by hip bursitis, and victims are most often adults.
