A burse is a fluid filled sac that decreases friction between two tissues. The primary burse of the hip is the greater trochanter burse. It is located on the outside of the hip between the gluteus mininmus and gluteus medius muscles, into the greater trochanter of the femur. It can become inflamed as a result of direct trauma or overuse.
