Hormone therapy and exercise as interventions for post-menopausal women with greater trochanteric pain syndrome. A randomised clinical trial

      Background: Greater trochanteric pain syndrome (GTPS) is a debilitating condition, prevalent in post-menopausal women.

Menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) could reduce the incidence of tendon abnormality in post-menopausal women, particularly when combined with exercise.
