Hip Bursitis Atlanta, GA
doctor with injection

Athletes and active individuals often suffer from common injuries of the body, mostly from overuse of a particular muscle group (or groups). Hip bursitis is one of these common injuries that can cause the area of the hip to become very tender and painful. Bursae are fluid-filled sacs that cushion the tendons, ligaments, and muscles. Normally, bursae help tendons, ligaments, and muscles guide smoothly over the bones in the hips and upper legs. However, when the bursae become swollen, the area around them is affected and this is known as hip bursitis.

Those who are affected by hip bursitis know it almost instantly. Symptoms of this injury include joint pain and tenderness, swelling, and warmth around the hip area. During the first few days of injury, the pain is often noted as sharp; it tends to lessen to a dull, achy pain after about a week. Most people notice that movements that require the use of the hip such as standing from a chair or sleeping on their sides cause the pain to become worse. Chronic bursitis of the hip can last for several weeks and can debilitate even the most active people.

Our goal is to treat our patients, relieve their symptoms, prevent future injuries, and to get them back to an active lifestyle.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
