Just wanted to let you know that I have used acupuncture several times for bursitis of the hips. The MD that does the treatment does anatomical acupuncture.

Before the acupuncture I would go to a Rheumatologist and get the steroid shots in my hips to get relief. Now I go to get acupuncture .. usually takes two treatments.

Good luck.

Hi KAy,
Thanks for your response and for taking the time, I appreciate that.

Question for you...what is anatomical accupuncture?...and you got relief in only two treatments?...that is amazing.
I have had the cortisone shots....the relief was very short lived..maybe a couple of days.
The bursitis pain...for me, becomes quite intense at times...going into my back, down my leg, into my feet.
The bursitis is a result of long standing back issues....and has become progressively worse...all due to the gait of my walk being compromised for such a long period of time.
Was your bursisitis mild?..or would you classify it as more intense/chronic?
How often do you get accupuncture?....and when you get relief how long does that last before you get a couple of more? you can see I have lots of questions....
Thank You!

I am a big believer in acupuncture! I don't have bursitis, but it has helped me with sinuses, and other pains/discomfort. It is definitely work looking into
