A hip brace is used after hip or pelvic surgery or an injury. Some hip braces and stabilisers also align the body parts after surgery or injury. They provide support to help reduce pain and improve recovery.

Given the variety of hip conditions, there are several different options that you can choose from. However, they generally perform the same function by keeping the hips level for safe healing. They can also be used to keep the knees and hip separated at an angle.

Hip braces can also help balance your walk, function as a shock absorber, limit your range of motion and align the hip, knee and pelvis. It also provides enough compression to maintain blood circulation. 

Some conditions that require hip braces include hip fracture, dislocation, dysplasia, replacement recovery and post-operative hip revision.
