I developed trochanteric bursitis and had a couple of steroid injections that helped but not for long.  I also had hip arthritis and had a successful hip replacement which allowed me to be much more active. Some time after the replacement the bursitis pain came back.  I couldn’t sleep on my side. The pain didn’t go away even after some physiotherapy.  I had the shock wave treatment and following the treatment the bursitis pain was greatly improved. My sleep was no longer disturbed because I could sleep on my side so the treatment has been a success!
