Brief Answer: Injection of a corticosteroid will be helpful. Detailed Answer: Hello I have studied your case. Many people with hip bursitis can experience relief with simple lifestyle changes, including: Modification of activities—avoiding the activities that worsen symptoms Use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (analgesic), such as ibuprofen or, piroxicam, to control inflammation and pain. Injection of a corticosteroid along with a local anaesthetic may also be helpful in relieving symptoms of hip bursitis. This is a simple and effective treatment that can be done by consulting your treating doctor. If bursa does not resolve with single injection then a repeat injection may be needed. If all these procedure does not give relief then surgical debridement may be required. Hope this answers your query.
