Hip compression

Despite its durability, the hip joint isn’t indestructible. Fractures in the hip area are very common among the elderly population. Accidents and sports injuries might be other causes for hip pain. By controlling the hip rotation, hip supports can quickly improve quality of life, enable patients to complete everyday tasks with significantly reduced pain, and aid a fast recovery.

Conditions that benefit from hip compression

A hip support or hip brace applies gentle pressure to the hip joint as well as the surrounding muscles, tendons and ligaments. This not only offers pain relief and stability to the hip, but also increases blood flow to the injured area, and controls the motion of the leg. This way the hip can heal in the right position, and you don't accidentally cause more damage to your hip injury.

One of the most common uses for Hip supports is after a total hip replacement or other hip surgery. The compression improves circulation in the hip and thigh, which reduces swelling and pain and helps to shorten the recovery time. After a fracture, hip supports let you control the hip rotation and limit movement during the recovery. Conditions like osteoarthritis also benefit from compression. The improved circulation helps to keep the hip joint warm, which reduces stiffness and relieves pain.

Does your hip need to be completely immobilized, hip braces are probably the better choice for you. If a hip support or brace is the right treatment for your hip injury needs to be determined by a medical professional. Your doctor will advise you on the right model as well as how and for how long to wear it.
