Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome
Greater Trochanteric Pain Syndrome (GTPS), also known as Trochantaric Bursitis, is inflammation of the trochanteric bursa, a part of the hip.
This bursa is situated adjacent to the femur, between the insertion of the gluteus medius and gluteus minimus muscles into the greater trochanter of the femur and the femoral shaft. It has the function, in common with other bursae, of working as a shock absorber and as a lubricant for the movement of the muscles adjacent to it.
