Hip bursitis can bother masses but is more common in women folk and middle-aged or elderly clan. Although, it is less popular with younger people and in men.
Following are the risk factors that have been widely associated with the development of hip bursitis. They are,

An injury or accident to the point of your hip can occur when you fall onto your hip. Besides, sleeping or lying on one side of your body for an extended period of time is not suggested.
– Spine problems
Issues like scoliosis, arthritis of the lumbar (lower) spine, and other spinal issues may occur.
– Leg-length inequality
When one leg is significantly shorter than the other, it affects the way you walk. This can further lead to irritation of a hip bursa.
– Rheumatoid arthritis
