    My wife would get bursitis on her hips from doing squats and long walks. She did physical therapy but ended up having to get surgery.

    The physical therapy did help but it was too serious for being in her 20's. Surgery did the trick.

    My girl is a physical therapist and said ice, stretching, and E Stim is about all you can as long as you are going to stay active. As far as E Stim goes if you don't already have a tens unit you can get a decent one on Amazon for around $50.

    You should get an MRI bro, you probably have a year. What kind of doctor diagnosed your issue? An orthopedic or PCP?

    I have it in my hips and did have hip surgery 9 years ago. It is resurfacing again and when it gets bad, of course, rest is the best. I use turmeric on a regular basis to help inflammation and it has been helpful.

    I get it in my elbows probably twice a year. Seems like when it's colder weather. The doc said pretty much ice and rest the area and prescribed inflammation meds. Think it was a steroid called predizone probably spelling it wrong but took a good 2 weeks off before it goes away

    I bought injectable dexamethasone and injectable torolac and it worked wonders for me. Now I'm just injecting pentosan for cartilage repair maintenance once a week.
