Overview Hip bursitis is a relatively common condition in which the fluid-filled sacs in your hip joints become inflamed. Hip bursitis can become especially challenging for runners. Luckily, there are many exercises you can do to counteract this wear and tear. Keeping the muscular foundation of your thighs and core is paramount. Having a strong muscular base supporting your hips will enable you to perform the same movements with fewer traumas caused to the joint itself.

Instead, your muscles will absorb the impact. The idea is to recruit muscles to stabilize your hips, rather than allowing your hips to experience any jarring motion. When it comes to alleviating bursitis pain, strength training is the remedy.

The hip is one of the three most common joints that can be affected by bursitis , with the shoulder and elbow being the two others. Hip bridges engage your hip flexors, glutes, hamstrings, and quadriceps. All of these muscles play a role in supporting the hip joints, making this exercise perfect for hip strength. Equipment needed: none, yoga mat optional Muscles worked: hip flexors, quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and lower back Start by lying flat on your back with your feet flat on the ground close to your bottom and your legs bent.

You should feel this upward driving motion primarily in your glutes and hamstrings. Sink your hips back down to the ground slowly. Perform 5 sets of 20 repetitions. Perform the hip bridge as described above. Be sure not to compromise your form as the repetitions get more challenging. Complete 5 sets. In each set, go until you achieve muscle failure. You can add a weight and sit it on your pelvis to increase the difficulty. Lying lateral leg raises Lying lateral leg raises will help strengthen and develop your tensor fasciae latae TFL and iliotibial band ITB , which spans the outside portion of your upper leg.

This vascular band is partially responsible for side-to-side leg motion. It often gets neglected in a running routine, since the running stride is forward and backward. Equipment needed: none, yoga mat optional Muscles worked: gluteus maximus, gluteus minimus, quadriceps, TFL and ITB Lie on your right side with your right arm extended out for balance.

Lift your leg up as far as you can extend it, trying to achieve the greatest range of motion possible. Complete 15 repetitions with that leg, then roll over onto your left side and perform Finish 3 sets of 15 repetitions on each leg.

Lying on your side can irritate hip bursitis. If this position irritates you, try putting a pillow or foam mat between the floor and your hip joint. If this is still irritating, you can perform this exercise standing. Performing lying leg circles will help promote the range of motion, flexibility, and strength in all of the small muscles that make hip and leg rotation possible. Equipment needed: none, yoga mat optional Muscles worked: hip flexors, quadriceps, and gluteal muscles Start by lying flat on your back with your legs extended.

Elevate your left leg to about 3 inches off of the ground, and then make small circles, keeping your whole leg straight and in line. Switch to your right leg and perform the same movement. Perform 3 sets of 5 rotations on each leg for 30 total reps on each leg. The takeaway For the best results, look to incorporate these exercises four to five times a week. Boosting the strength of your hip and leg muscles will undoubtedly minimize the risk for developing bursitis and may help with the pain associated with hip bursitis.
