This article presents a case study of a 54-year-old man with hip pain. The patient denied systemic signs of illness, weight loss, and nocturnal symptoms. Over-the-counter medications and complete avoidance of activity provided little relief. Inflammation of the trochanteric bursa, one of the most common causes of hip pain, results from exaggerated movements of the gluteus medius tendon and the tensor fascia over the femur. Patients typically experience lateral hip and thigh pain that worsens with ambulation or direct pressure over the area.
