Hip Pain Info - Trochanteric bursitis

In order to understand this condition it is important to understand the anatomy and function of the hip. Please read Hip Pain Info's section on the anatomy of the hip .

What is a bursa?

A bursa is a small sac that usually contains a small amount of fluid. It acts as a cushion between bones and softer tissues such as muscles and tendons. A bursa also reduces the friction between bones and these tissues.

What is the trochanteric bursa?

The trochanteric bursa is the bursa that is located at the outer part of the hip, often referred to as the "point" of the hip. The part of the thigh bone (femur) that forms the "point" of the hip is called the greater trochanter.

  • Bone spurs on the greater trochanter or calcium deposits inside the trochanteric bursa.
