I have had bursitis in the right hip for two years and in the left hip for one year. Shots did not help me either. I do my stretches, from physical therapy, twice a day and that does help but does not take the bursitis completely away. I am going to try orthotics. I have had a knee problem and the orthotics seem to aggravate the condition but they also seem to help the hips more than anything else I have tried. Go to a podiatrist and talk to him about orhtotics. If I can solve my knee problem, I think orthotics might be the answer. Also try ice, but not more than 15 minutes per day. Good Luck!
