Course Overview

Lateral hip pain, although frequently mistaken by patients for potentially crippling osteoarthritis, typically does not involve the hip joint itself. Instead, pain overlying the lateral aspect of the hip is associated most commonly with greater trochanteric hip bursitis, particularly when present in older individuals. But many times, a seemingly straightforward case of hip bursitis may be slow to respond to treatment, leaving clinicians scratching their heads as to why. Healthcare professionals should understand the differential diagnosis and treatment of greater trochanteric pain syndrome.
