Ischial Bursitis


Ischial Bursitis is an inflammation in the interior of the gluteal muscles.


Ischial Bursitis is the inflammation of bursa(sac), located in the base of hip bone(ischial tuberosity). A lump may be felt in the afflicted area, and is painful when pressed. People who are in occupations that involve prolonged hours sitting down are more likely to develop ischial bursitis.

Diagnostic Procedures

The basic examination method yields morphology of the condition.
The USG is utilized to verify abnormalities in the soft tissue region, and whether the bursae in the hip are swollen.
Bone Scan
The Bone Scan is useful for verifying the areas of fracture or disorder, which appear darker.
Computerized Tomography(CT)
The CT is useful for locating abnormalities in the bone tissue. The generation of 3D image is especially beneficial in complex fracture, by providing a cross-sectional image for a more comprehensive determination of diagnosis.
Magnetic resonance imaging(MRI)
The MRI is very useful in examining the changes in articular cartilage, verifying lesions in bone tissues, and determining any abnormalities in the soft tissues adjacent to the joint.
