GTPS – GREATER TROCHANTERIC PAIN SYNDROME


  • HIP PAIN .
    – Pain over the side of the hip is commonly related to changes in the health of the tendons that join the gluteal muscles to the hip, and sometimes of the nearby bursae (fluid filled sacks that help reduce friction between tendons and bones).
    – The condition may be diagnosed as Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS) or Gluteal Tendinopathy-Tendinitis or Trochanteric Bursitis
    – Regardless of the diagnostic term and whether in your case the tendons or bursae seem to be most affected, the underlying cause appears to be the same and strategies to improve health of one, will help the other as well.

HIP BURSITIS


– Bursae are small, jelly-like sacs containing a small amount of fluid, positioned b/n bones and soft tissues, acting as cushions to help reduce friction. 
– Bursitis is inflammation of the bursa. There are two major bursae in the hip that typically become irritated and inflamed. One bursa covers the bony point of the hip bone called the greater trochanter. Inflammation of this bursa is called trochanteric bursitis.
