I had it in my hip, they gave me anti-inflammatories (diclofenic) and it healed up within a few days. I still get bouts of it though... Hope somebody comes along soon to help you more smile

it only took a couple of weeks to get better but i had to stop doing what was making it sore in the first place or it just came back. the oil took the pain away in about 4 hours.

Normal medical management - refrain from aggrevating activity, ice, anti-inflammatories, usually settle within a few weeks. All the best.

diclofenac or ibuprofen if you are not asthmatic. You could try ibuprofen gel. Rest it and then the bursa will reduce. Unfortunately it is a product of repetitive injury.
