      i have been diagnosed with bursitis over the greater trochanter (hip) I have tried everything under the sun to give me relief, PT, acupuncture, chiropractor, stretching, but will not go away. Anyone else have chronic pain like this?

      Yup. Had it for months. Crossfitted for years with no problems. Began training strictly Olympic weightlifting and it popped up. I recently picked up Mobilty WODs supernova and battlestar kit. Dedicating time on those things has seemed to calm it down a bit. In the last couple days, I have been trying KT tape and it has been feeling better. Granted I am coming off a two week taper/deload so I expect the combination of all of that has helped.

      I expect it to go away in time. I just figure it will take a long time. If I stopped squatting for a while I bet it would calm down quicker but that is really not an option.

      Randy,

      I had the exact same thing and nothing was helping.  I scheduled an appointment with Kelly.  I remember limping in to see him and walking out just fine.  I actually worked out that night pain free.  Here is what worked for me: 1. Hip glute smash, 2. Banded Hip Extension, 3. Couch stretch.  He put me in each position and I was under the impression I had a high pain threshold.  I was sweating and ready to tapp in all of 15 secs but I stay for atleast 2:00 minutes.  I felt better right after the drills and I continued to do them on my own.  When my doctor called me to see if I needed anything for pain I told him I was good.  No more issues now.  Good luck.
