The lateral hip is a common site for hip pain. It has been termed greater trochanteric pain syndrome and the condition can be debilitating for patients. It has been shown in MRI studies that recalcitrant greater trochanteric pain syndrome is secondary to underlying abductor tendon pathology in about 50% of cases and it may not respond to the usual treatments for greater trochanteric pain syndrome, such as therapy, NSAIDs and corticosteroid injections. Abductor tendon pathology most commonly occurs in women in their fifth and sixth decade of life and it often presents as a lateral pain, limp, Trendelenburg gait and weak abduction of the hip.

More than 1/3 of people over the age of 65 experience a fall or already have fall-related issues. The consequences of falling can be severe given the lowered bone density, weakened muscles, and decreased capacity of the body to heal itself as we grow older.
