This is when the bursa at the inner or outer side of the hip becomes inflamed or affected. This bursa inflammation causes pain in the hip and restricts the range of motion. Small sacs containing synovial fluid are found throughout the body. This is called a bursa. These structures help to move ligaments over bones and reduce friction. Two bursae are located on our hips. One is on the trochanteric bone, known as trochanteric Bursa. The other is on the inner side, called iliopsoas Bursa.
