  1. If you have chronic issues involving multiple joint surfaces the only thing I've found (scoliosis, bilateral hip bursitis and tendonosis) is to be active but with caution like walking or avoiding stagnant movement

  2. I have bursitis in both hips, it all started one day that I went bike riding after not riding a bike for about 8 years. Since then i have it, already 3 years. Cortisone shot gave me bad reaction (swollen face) plus it didn't help anyways. Did PT twice helped a little in the moment but coninued with same issue. Can't afford going for PT a third time because of the copay. When you have it on both hips is difficult to get better. I am 41 yrs old, used to be healthy but now I cant even exercise. Wish I never went bike riding.

  3. Lack of stabilising muscle strength is just one of the reasons. The remedy suggested can be effective for hip bursitis at a muscular level. However, for chronic pain, we suggest remedies like laser pain therapy. Visit us at:

  4. Informative video! I have chronic bursitis on my right hip, and various problems on my right leg. Normal walking is not painful for me, but opening the leg is when it gets really really painful. I used to do martial arts, and was always unable to do high kicks with my right leg. Any exercise that could increase the opening range of the leg with bursitis? 

  5. My physio told me to do a similar exercise but NOT lying down. Sit on the floor, with knees up and then wrap a rubber exercise band (or a pair of tights) around the knees, then try to draw the knees down and apart, against the resistance of the band. 10-15 times, morning and night. It helped.

  6. My physical therapist showed me this same exercise. I can really feel the pull in my hip. The exercise has helped reduce the pain. I get on ice as I can throughout the day. No more pain meds or shots for me!

  7. If you actually have bursitis, you wouldn't be laying on the hip…or you would be in extreme pain. I guess you could "in theory" exercise the bad hip? yikes! Just looking at her laying there is making me cringe. I had to stop all mat/floor exercises for my chronic hip bursitis. Also, I was told to never lay on it, not even in a bed. As we all know, it makes it so much worse. 🙁

  8. You're right. i know the bad fat is the reason that stopping 6 pack coming outside even we work out well. And one of my friend working in fitness field suggested me this 7 secret food items to kill our jelly belly. get to know here

  9. I have chronic bursitis in my hip, and there is NO WAY I could lie directly on my hip like that. It would make it flare up. Doesn't make sense
