Hip bursitis is a relatively common condition that can result in a great deal of pain in the hip area, when the sufferer attempts any form of movement. The cause of hip bursitis is the inflammation of a fluid sac known as a Bursa which lies between the bone of the hip joint and the tendon which passes over this bone. In healthy individuals, this bursa serves as both a shock absorber and a lubrication device to ease the movement of the hip bone and adjoining tendon, but in hip bursitis sufferers the inflammation of the bursa means that any movement of the hip joint results in a great deal of pain.
What can cause hip bursitis?
The condition occurs largely due to one of two reasons. Firstly, constant irritation and wear on the hip bursa from a large amount of exercise, particularly running, can cause the inflammation which leads to hip bursitis. The other cause however, is more instantaneous and is known as traumatic bursitis. This is when a trip or fall where you land on your hip or upper thigh is the root cause of the condition. With this circumstance, if you suffered a trip or fall that was somebody else’s fault and led to the onset of hip bursitis you are legally entitled to seek compensation for the pain, suffering and financial costs which may have resulted from your condition.
