hip brace


A Hip Brace keeps your hips level so they can safely heal. Typically, a hip brace is called a hip abduction brace. It holds your thighbone safely in your hip socket. It can also keep hips and knees separated at a certain angle.


There are also hip-knee braces. A soft band or sleeve wraps around your thigh and connects to the hip part of the brace. A hip-knee brace aligns and supports both parts of your body.


The goal of a hip brace is to stabilize your hip and pelvic area after trauma. It can also:


Balance your walk

Limit range of motion

Act as a shock absorber

Align your hip, pelvis and knee

Redistribute pressure on your hip and pelvis
