Hip Bursitis

What causes hip bursitis?

Most commonly, bursitis is a noninfectious condition (aseptic bursitis) caused by inflammation resulting from local soft-tissue trauma or strain injury. On rare occasions, the hip bursa can become infected with bacteria. This condition is called septic bursitis. Although uncommon, the hip bursa can become inflamed by crystals that deposit there from gout or pseudogout.
