Bursa inflammation is responsible for the creation of a condition called bursitis. The fluid that fills the bursa is responsible for the reduction of friction between the joints of the bone. When there is an excessive strain and use of the joint along with the wrong posture, the inflammation is developed. The hip joint bursitis is called now trochanteric bursitis, which is developed due to some health conditions, hip damage and incorrect posture. The hip area will inflict a lot of pain if trochanteric bursitis is present. In some cases, the pain can be so severe and even expand to the legs. This pain will be felt during running, climbing and walking. The pain will reduce if you get proper amount of rest, while the pain can become worse if you do some activity. Exercises are the next step of the treatment and they are done when the pain resides. Due to these exercises, the hip bones and muscles will become strong and flexible.

Leg Exercises

Side leaning is one of the exercises that can help. Do this while standing in front of a wall. Then the affected leg needs to be crossed over the unaffected one. Then place the palms on the wall and lean forward on the affected side. Do the same for the other side as well. Next exercise is done while lying down on your back and with the affected leg elevated for 8 to 10 inches. This position needs to be held for several seconds after which comes the other leg. Remember to keep the knees straight. Next exercises is done while standing and with the affected leg crossed over the unaffected. Then, bend down towards the toes and remain in this position half a minute. Return to the starting position and do the same with the other leg.

Leg raise is the next exercise that is done while lying down. The upper area of the affected thigh needs to be stiffened and then the leg needs to be raised from 6 to 8 inches above the floor and keep the thigh muscles tight while doing this. Remain in this position for 10 seconds and return to the starting position. Do these ten times and in three sets. Next is the cross leg pull done while sitting on a chair with the affected leg placed over the unaffected one. Hold your knees and pull the affected leg in the opposite direction, while the buttocks are flat during the pull. Remain in this position for five to ten seconds. Do three sets of this exercise with 10 repetitions.
