Lateral Hip Pain/Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS)

GTPS is a condition where pain is felt on the
outer side of the hip that may also travel down
the outer side of your thigh. It can present suddenly
through overuse or build up gradually over time.

The pain is most likely due to irritation, over loading
or degeneration of one or two of the smaller hip
muscle tendons (gluteus medius and minimus)
where they attach into the hip bone. This is also
known as ‘tendinopathy’. In roughly 20% of
occurrences there may be an associated
inflamed bursa known as a bursitis contributing
to pain..
