BURSITIS


 

Overview

Bursitis is a condition in which the bursa, a fluid filled sac, becomes inflamed. The bursa functions as a gliding surface that reduces friction between moving tissue in the hip. Bursitis of the hip is the most common form of hip pain. There are three types of bursitis in the hip: trochanteric bursitis (most common), ischial bursitis and iliopsoas bursitis.
