GTPS (Greater trochanter Pain Syndrome) is an umbrella term that encompasses conditions that result in pain in the outside of your hip. Other names for this include trochanteric bursitis or gluteal tendinopathy and it is due to injury, irritation or inflammation to the tissues that surround the outside of your hip.
This is a common condition that we see in runners and there can be various factors that lead to this pain occurring.
Typically, it is related to overloading the tendons of the hip or increasing training too rapidly.
Hip pain can also be referred from the back.
See a Physiotherapist at Hallamshire Physiotherapy for a thorough assessment, to determine the factors influencing the pain and how to manage/treat and avoid the pain from returning.
