I don't know, but I suffer in both hips. Tremendously painful.

Have you tried ESWT?

If ESWT is the same as Orthotripsy, then yes; but not for bursitis. I thought ESWT was for plantar fasciitis.

I believe that ESWT can be used for hip bursitis however it isn't used in this country so far. Try the web site http://www.painfree-eswt.com

They do it in the US. I was at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimmore. They did three treatments on each hip. I have to see the doctor at Union Memorial in August. If the three treatments are not effective, they will do two more on each hip if necessary.

Thanks. I guess we are talking about the Soncur eswt treatment program. Please let us know how you make out. This is one of the anatomical areas for ESWT treatment

I have had three treatments on the left hip. The 12th week expires on 9-2. I have also had three treatments on the right hip. The 12th week will on expire on 9-15. I still have pain. Is there any hope?
