What causes hip bursitis?
Most commonly, bursitis is a noninfectious condition (aseptic bursitis) caused by inflammation that results from local soft-tissue trauma or strain injury. On rare occasions, the hip bursa can become infected with bacteria. This condition is called septic bursitis. Although uncommon, the hip bursa can become inflamed by crystals that deposit there from gout or pseudogout.
What are risk factors for hip bursitis?
Risk factors for hip bursitis include activities that could strain the hip area, including going up and down stairs, stair-climber exercising, etc.
