Hello. Thank you for posting.

 Bursitis, or inflammation of a bursa, is usually not infectious, but the bursa can become infected. Bursitis of the hip is the most common cause of hip pain. Acute injury, overuse, or degenerative arthritis in the hip or back can lead to bursitis.   Treatment of (noninfectious) bursitis includes rest, ice, and medications for inflammation and pain such as Ibuprofen. If home treatment does not help after a few weeks time,  see your doctor, preferably an orthopedist.  Cortisone injections can be used to treat bursitis (i had this done for mine).  Examples of conditions for which local cortisone injections are used include inflammation of a bursa (bursitis of the hip, knee, elbow, or shoulder), a tendon (tendonitis), and a joint (arthritis).
