Trochanteric Bursitis

Trochanteric Bursitis or “Runners’ Hip” occurs when excessive pressure or friction between the hip bone and the iliotibial band causes the bursa to become irritated, painful, and sore.

The trochanteric bursa is a pad of connective tissue that sits between the bone at the side of the hip and a long tendon that runs down the outside of the leg called the iliotibial band.

The bursa works like a cushion and protects both the hip bone and the iliotibial band from becoming damaged when the two structures rub over each other when we walk or run.
