Trochanteric bursitis

What is trochanteric bursitis?

Trochanteric pain syndrome or trochanteric bursitis is usually caused by tendinopathy in the gluteus medius or gluteus minimus muscle, due to overload in the hip abductor muscles, which play a major role in pelvic stabilization.

In addition, inflammation of the bursa (which normally protects two hard surfaces against friction) can cause pain. The bursa is located just above the greater trochanter of the hip, which is anatomically deep to the gluteus medius muscle, and causes tension on the lateral fascia muscle.

How will we deal with it?

Through a combination of treatment based on manual therapy, rehabilitation exercises and technology.

For this purpose, Clínica Sohail performs a global assessment beforehand, We perform a thorough and complete examination of the musculoskeletal and nervous system, and depending on the results, we assess which type of treatment is the most appropriate for the patient. In a cross-cutting manner, the readaptation team will carry out an intervention through therapeutic exercise

Depending on the degree of injury, and together with the application of technology such as ultrasound-guided percutaneous intratissue electrolysis (EPI), and Echoguided Percutaneous Percutaneous Neuromodulation, Shock waves, Imoove or Magnetic Resonance Therapy (MBST), we will work with a program of control exercises, global postural reeducation (RPG) and/or strength exercises.

The Hyperbaric Chamber can be a great ally in the recovery, thanks to the oxygenation that occurs in the tissues that is produced in the tissues, reduces the recovery time of breaks, wounds, muscle injuries and bone fractures.
