bursitis

I am an advanced bronze student and have been battling bursitis in my left hip for about 6 weeks. Steroid injections, NSAIDS, topical creams and reducing my time dancing hasn't helped. I currently am taking two weeks off from all dancing in hopes that it will help.
I plan to compete in February 2015 and need to be pain free as soon as possible. I would very much appreciate any advice from others who may have similar issues.
Thanks
RB

I am an advanced age beginner - 3 years. Complete rest for almost two months after steroid injection helped me with a bad hip strain. Physical therapy alleviated the pain but did not allow the process of inflammation to subside - in the end made it only worse. Check with a good sports medicine MD if, maybe, you are positioning some of your moves wrong.

Thank you for your response. I have been out of the studio for a week now and have noticed a difference. As much as I want to compete in February, I am thinking it isn't a good idea. There are alwAys going to be competitions and if I don't take it easy now, I could jeopardize future comps.

...see how it goes. I am, probably, older than you, overweight and was in a very bad physical shape at the time of injury. I also have a slight hip joint deformity, which made my gluteal muscles overstretch. It may take you less time to recover: just make sure that you are pain free for a while. But I agree - it is not worth a risk. The best of luck!
