Bursitis of the hip
Hi, I have read up on this and understand massage is contra-indicated in acute cases. My client has asked for any advice I can give her. I have some but wondered if anyone here has ssomething I could add to it. Kind regards Jane
I've had bursitis now for almost 2 years. In fact I had a massage on it yesterday. I find it soothing. I don't think I'd like a firm massage on it when it's really bad as I'd probably jump thru the roof but I do find comfort in gentle effluage when it's painful. I've also had chiropractic treatments on it to but both short lasting. For me the only thing that helps is cortisone injections but I've just found out from my gp that I'm only allowed 3 in my lifetime for this condition as can cause long lasting irreversible ligament damage so have now been referred to physio. I hope that helps in some way from a therapist & personal point of view x
Thank you for your reply.
My sister swore by lavender oil in the bath fir her shoulder. Consult an aromatherapist

I would consider treating - but around the area rather than on it (obviously!) - so work at releasing all the thigh muscles and some slow, careful compression of gluteals.
