Trochanteric bursitis involves inflammation of the bursa located at the outermost bony point of the hip. This point is known as the greater trochanter. Bursae are small, jelly-like sacs found throughout the body. Their purpose is to reduce friction between bone and muscle. The inflammation results in pain at the point of the hip, and often, it extends into the thigh and sometimes all the way to the knee.
