Pain on the hip when sleeping on the side is the most common problem with hip bursitis

There are many causes for hip bursitis including prolonged postures sitting with work, muscle strain or injury around the hip, or a fall onto the hip.

Symptoms people often describe can range from difficulty sleeping on the side, feeling of tightness and soreness around the hip and leg, and sometimes a pain when walking.

Recent research suggest physiotherapy may be more effective than steroid injections when treating hip bursitis.
