Hip Bursitis: Easing Pain and Inflammation with SoftWave Therapy

Published October 13th, 2023 by Dr. Sam Camarata

Hip bursitis is a common and painful condition that affects many individuals, often causing discomfort and limiting mobility. This inflammatory condition occurs when the bursae, small fluid-filled sacs that cushion the hip joint, become irritated or inflamed. While traditional treatments may provide relief, SoftWave Therapy led by Dr Sam Camarata and team at Camarata Chiropractic & Wellness in North Chili of Rochester, NY offers a promising alternative that targets the root causes of hip bursitis. Let's delve into what hip bursitis is, its impact on daily life, and how SoftWave Therapy can help alleviate pain and inflammation.

Understanding Hip Bursitis

The hip joint is surrounded by bursae, which serve as natural cushions to reduce friction between the bones, tendons, and muscles in the hip area. When these bursae become irritated or inflamed, it leads to hip bursitis. This condition can be caused by various factors, including repetitive motion, overuse, trauma, or underlying medical conditions.

The primary symptoms of hip bursitis include:

Hip Pain: 

Hip bursitis often presents as a deep, aching pain on the outside of the hip, which can radiate down the thigh. The pain may worsen with activities like walking, running, or climbing stairs.


Inflammation of the bursae can cause localized swelling in the hip area.


The affected hip joint may become tender to the touch.

Reduced Mobility: 

Hip bursitis can limit range of motion, making it difficult to move the hip joint comfortably.

Discomfort During Rest: 

Pain and discomfort from hip bursitis can also affect sleep and rest, leading to further discomfort and fatigue.

Conventional Treatments vs. SoftWave Therapy

Traditional treatments for hip bursitis often begin with conservative approaches, such as rest, ice, anti-inflammatory medications, and physical therapy. These treatments can help manage symptoms and provide temporary relief for some individuals. However, they may not address the root causes of the condition.

Medication: Over-the-counter or prescription nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) can help reduce pain and inflammation but may have side effects with long-term use.

Physical Therapy: Physical therapy exercises and stretches can improve strength and flexibility around the hip joint, which may reduce the risk of recurrence.

Corticosteroid Injections: In some cases, healthcare providers may recommend corticosteroid injections to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain.

Surgical Interventions: Surgery is considered a last resort for hip bursitis when conservative treatments fail to provide relief.

The SoftWave Therapy Advantage

SoftWave Therapy, also known as SoftWave Tissue Regeneration Therapy (TRT), offers a revolutionary approach to managing hip bursitis. This non-invasive treatment utilizes electrohydraulic supersonic acoustic waves to stimulate the body's natural healing processes, providing relief and promoting tissue repair.

Here's how SoftWave Therapy can benefit individuals with hip bursitis:

Pain Relief: 

SoftWave Therapy targets the root causes of hip bursitis by reducing inflammation and pain. It improves blood flow and circulation to the affected area, facilitating the body's ability to heal itself.

Inflammation Reduction: 

By promoting better circulation and lymphatic drainage, SoftWave Therapy helps reduce swelling and inflammation in the hip joint.

Faster Healing: 

SoftWave Therapy stimulates the activation and recruitment of resident stem cells, promoting tissue repair and regeneration. This means that healing continues long after the treatment sessions have ended.


Unlike surgery, SoftWave Therapy is non-invasive, eliminating the need for incisions, anesthesia, or extended recovery periods.

Embrace Pain Relief with SoftWave Therapy

For individuals suffering from hip bursitis, SoftWave Therapy represents an innovative approach to pain relief and inflammation reduction. It offers a non-invasive and non-pharmaceutical alternative to traditional treatments, focusing on addressing the root causes of the condition.
