Hip Bursitis?

Has anyone ever suffered from Hip Bursitis, its pain all around the hip area. I am unable to squat also I can feel a snapping or popping sound on the side of my hip. Had it for past 6 months any experiences with it? Also how did you heal it?

Who diagnosed you with bursitis and what was the MOI? I have not seen a snapping/popping associated with bursitis. More questions: age, training experience, history of injury, general activity (hobbies, sports, etc.), can you pinpoint the pain, superficial or deep? Just need some more info so I can help more.

I’ve included an article (as I usually do with my posts) to further educate you on hip bursitis.

Have you tried foam rolling your IT band daily? Just went through something similar post surgery, had a bunch of pain and it was all from tight it bands.

Sounds like you have external snapping hip. Typically associated with tightness of the ITB, tightness and weakness of the glutes. Tightness through the glutes may also cause a hip bursitis.

You aren’t exactly accurate with your description as pain all around the hip area could also mean back pain/ groin pain and internal hip pain. Sounds like much of it is on the outside however.
