Massage Therapy for Trochanteric Bursitis

Therapeutic massages do far more than provide a few minutes of peace. For those who suffer from chronic pain caused by trochanteric bursitis, a massage provides these life-enhancing benefits.

Ease Muscular Pain

Trochanteric bursitis pain tends to come and go depending upon one’s activity levels, yet the majority of people suffer from some degree of pain on a daily basis. This is because the bursa become inflamed and filled with fluid that presses upon the muscles and ligaments in a person’s hips and thighs. During a massage, the surrounding muscles are gently manipulated to loosen them up and provide relief.

Relieve Stress

Living with chronic pain generates stress that contributes to muscular tension throughout the body. People who live with trochanteric bursitis often experience pain in their upper back, shoulders, and jaw. The experience of having a massage therapist press upon the pressure points in the areas and release the knots in these areas helps decrease one’s overall sense of discomfort while promoting greater relaxation.

Reduced Inflammation

Inflammation is the primary cause of discomfort for those who suffer from trochanteric bursitis. When the bursa sacs fill with fluid, they are unable to properly lubricate and cushion the tendons and bones in the hips. The inflammation can also cause redness, swelling, and tenderness throughout the affected hip and thigh area. During a massage, the area of inflammation is gently manipulated so that fluid is released and redistributed throughout the body. This reduces inflammation and reduces pressure on the nerves and bones.

Massage therapy for trochanteric bursitis is more than a luxury. For those who live with chronic pain, it provides a life-altering opportunity to ease pain and discomfort so that an active lifestyle is possible again.
