Bursae are fluid filled sacs that create a cushion between the bones, ligaments, tendons, muscle, and skin. Trochanteric Bursitis describes a condition in which one or more of these sacs within the hip joint become inflamed. This condition is commonly caused by repeated movement or prolonged pressure on the affected area. Bursitis can be caused by overuse, injury, or conditions like arthritis or infection.
