What is Iliopectineal Bursitis and Iliopsoas Bursitis?

Bursae are fluid filled sacs that act to reduce friction between bones, tendons and/or muscles surrounding certain joints. The Iliopectineal bursa, also known as the iliopsoas bursa, is located anteriorly, or at the front of the hip, and can become irritated when hip flexor hypertonicity (tightness) is coupled with repetitive activity. The result is a severe, acute anterior hip pain with an antalgic (altered) gait. The neighbouring femoral nerve may also be affected, in which case the pain can radiate down the anterior (front) aspect of the leg.
