Re: Bursitis
Mar 12, 2015
Trochanteric bursitis. Is it possible to get a steroid shot for the bursitis? That is about the only thing that calms mine down. That and using a firm foam roller that I put against the wall and bend at the knees, putting pressure on the roller with my hip, and go up and down, rolling the thing between my hip and the wall. There are many YouTube videos about it.
There are a lot of studies out on a new treatment for this-they go in arthroscopiclly and just remove the bursa all together.
Have you tried icing it? My Dad has had some really bad hip problems, and icing always helped, as did using a rub in gel called Valtoran Gel. Here in the US it is by prescription. When we were in Canada and New Zealand it was over the counter. It was originally made for wrists and hands, but Dad said it was the ONLY thing that helped with hip pain for him.
