What Are Hip Orthotics?
Our orthotics for hip pain consist of braces and supports designed to provide support, stability, and rehabilitation for hip-related conditions and injuries.
Hip orthosis braces range from custom-made versions created by a medical professional for a specific patient to pre-made pediatric hip orthosis braces designed with children's growing anatomies in mind.
Such braces support weakened hips, manage joint contractures, improve posture, and increase mobility. Hip orthotics are essential for treating, managing, and preventing various hip conditions.
Hip Orthosis Types
As well as post-operative support, custom hip orthotics are used to treat a variety of conditions, such as:
Benefits of Hip Orthosis
Custom Hip Orthotics Process
At your initial appointment with your prosthetist, they will inquire about your medical background and lifestyle goals. Afterward, they will take measurements of your residual limb and submit this information to your insurance provider.
- Customization and Fabrication
Once insurance has been approved, we will send your measurements to Össur, our valued partner's fabrication facilities. There, highly trained technicians use the latest techniques and equipment to convert the data into the finished orthotic device. By collaborating with PrimeCare, you can be confident that your custom hip orthotics will be of the highest quality.
- Fitting and Adjustment
Our clinicians will schedule an appointment to ensure your hip orthotic device fits and works properly. They will also provide you with a plan to help you gradually increase the amount of time you wear your orthosis to get the most out of your custom device.

Can orthotics help with hip pain?
Yes. Orthotics can effectively manage hip pain by realigning the body and reducing strain on the hips. You get custom orthotics for hip arthritis, dysplasia, necrosis, and other issues that promote good posture, which relieves lower back pain and, in turn, minimizes hip discomfort.
Are custom-made hip orthotics better than non-customized ones?
Custom-made hip orthotics typically provide a more precise fit and better support and alignment than over-the-counter orthotics. However, the best orthotic inserts for hip pain and braces depend on individual needs and circumstances.
Can new orthotics cause hip pain?
New orthotics can put pressure on the hip joint and surrounding muscles and tissues, which causes discomfort for some people. If you experience hip pain after wearing orthotics, talk to your doctor so they can adjust your device for a more comfortable fit.
How long do you have to wear a hip brace?
Generally, post-surgery or injury rehabilitation braces are worn for 6-8 weeks. Hip braces for pain management may need to be worn longer, depending on the pain's severity and a healthcare professional's advice.
When should you wear a hip brace?
A hip brace provides support and compression to the hip during increased activity, strain, or instability. This can include post-injury treatment (to stabilize the hip while healing), during exercise, or in the case of arthritis, to relieve the affected area from pain or discomfort.
