Massage Therapy for Trochanteric Bursitis

Bursitis is an inflammation of the joints that causes the soft tissue to swell, putting pressure on the surrounding tissues and bones and causing a great deal of pain. It is often caused by an injury, overdoing a mobile activity, or arthritis. Trochanteric bursitis is an inflammation in the outer hip joint and causes great difficulty with any activity that needs the movement of your hip.

Massage Therapy

By massaging the soft tissues surrounding the inflamed area, the therapist helps create an environment that allows oxygen-rich blood to flow more freely to your hip. This increases your body's natural healing system and allows for quicker recovery. As the pressure on your muscles is relieved, you can move your hip better, making it easier to do gentle stretches and other activities that will keep your hip joint flexible. This strengthens the area and helps the inflammation recede quicker.


Massaging the exact area of inflammation can make things worse. Only a massage therapist trained in how and where to manipulate can provide the healing benefits. When seeking massage therapy for any type of bursitis, make sure to choose a qualified therapist. With the right treatment, you’ll see relief of your symptoms, feel a greater sense of calmness, and be able to return to your normal daily routine quicker. Once healing has occurred, periodic massage of the area will help keep it stronger, staving off the onset of further episodes.
