Abstract

Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS) is a common cause of lower extremity pain. This is frequently attributed to trochanteric bursitis and distension of the subgluteal bursae. Patients are suffering from pain radiating to the posterolateral aspect of the thigh, paraesthesiae in the legs, and tenderness over the iliotibial tract. Often the symptoms are mild, with the patient treating himself successfully through activity modification and other conservative measures. including relative rest, ice, compression, elevation, anti-inflammatory medication and treatment modalities such as ultrasound and electrical stimulation, combined with a structured rehabilitation program. Patients whose symptoms persist despite conservative therapy are likely to benefit from an injection of corticosteroid and anaesthetic into the inflamed bursa. More invasive surgical interventions have anecdotally been reported to provide pain relief when previous treatment modalities fail.

In this article, we review the pathogenesis, common initial symptoms, diagnostic approach, and treatment options for trochanteric bursitis.
