Trochanteric bursitis presents as pain and stiffness in the hip and lateral thigh which may radiate down the ilio-tibial band. It is often a repetitive stress injury characterized by inflammation of the trochanteric bursa of the hip. Sometimes, it may occur from acute trauma. Hip bursitis usually involves the gluteal muscles and the ilio-tibial band.
Treatment of the hip bursae, as shown in this webinar, skillfully combines local and adjacent points. Locally, there are various techniques to treat the bursae itself. And the adjacent muscles, including the gluteus medius, alert the practitioner to vitally important tissues where no traditional acupuncture points are located. Whitfield Reaves teaches that treatment of trochanteric bursitis is one of the very highly effective injuries, as it responds quite well to the techniques of acupuncture sports medicine. He will include instruction on the extraordinary point Jiankua, an extremely useful point in hip and gluteal conditions.
