Hip orthotics

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.

What Is AFO

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:

Solid Ankle AFO

Hip Osteoarthritis

A degenerative disease that causes pain, stiffness, and reduced function.

Articulated AFO

When the blood supply is disrupted, leading to bone death and eventual hip joint collapse or arthritis.

Floor (Ground) Reaction AFO

The upper part of the thigh bone (femur) breaks near the hip joint.

Floor (Ground) Reaction AFO

When the hip joint doesn't develop normally.

Floor (Ground) Reaction AFO

The hip joint ball does not fit correctly within the hip socket, leading to friction and pain.

Benefits of Hip Orthosis

Hip orthotics provide various benefits, such as improved hip stability, posture, and alignment; increased muscle strength and balance; reduced pain and inflammation; and a lower risk of injury. They prevent or slow the progression of hip degenerative joint diseases and minimize symptoms of arthritis, tendonitis, strains, sprains, bursitis, and other hip-related muscle, ligament, and common issues. Ultimately, these devices enhance mobility, leading to a better quality of life.

Custom Hip Orthotics Process

Our integrated approach to treatment includes fabricating custom-made orthotics, making modifications to footwear, prescribing exercises, and recommending medication if necessary.
Our Process
  • Evaluation

    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.

Insurance & Payments

Hip prosthetics are covered by most insurance policies as they're considered medical necessities. We are contracted with many health insurance plans, including HMOs and PPOs, and accept Medicare. Still, we encourage you to inquire whether we support your specific healthcare plan. PrimeCare also offers customizable payment plans for co-payments, percentages, deductibles, and other expenses that may not be covered.

FAQ

  • 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.
