Trochanteric bursitis

APPOMATTOX, VA (WWBT) -

Often times people feel hip pain and do not know the cause. In this week's Neighborhood Healthwatch we discuss Trochanteric Bursitis.

In Appomattox- Dr. John Clay is treating trochanteric bursitis.

This is a common cause of hip pain affecting the outside part of the leg.

Stretching, over the counter anti-inflammatory drugs and reducing weight bearing may help.

A prescription medication or an injection by your physician is often helpful.
