Hip Surgery

HAVING SURGERY on your hip is quite brutal, and particularly when it’s a full replacement. This is exactly when hip brace supports are needed.

I haven’t had this done, but I did experience a lot of what it’s all about with a close personal friend.

He agonized for months with a hip joint that was completely worn out. For one reason or another, he would put off the operation and limp around in pain. Then the day came when he could no longer function anywhere near normal, and he scheduled the op.

He recounted to me, what the surgeon’s reply was, when asked how the procedure is actually done. I nearly fell over backwards! It’s no wonder that the hip is so sore after an operation like that. I won’t go into the nitty gritty details. Suffice it to say – the leg/hip will never be put into that position at any time other than being under full anesthesia!

My friend opted not to use a hip brace stabilizer during his recovery/ rehab period, and chose to use only a cane in its place. A big mistake in my opinion.SCA Hip Brace

 

How Can Hip Brace Supports Help?

The hip is part of our foundation and bears a lot of pressure from the weight of the upper body. Simple tasks that can be often taken for granted, like walking and sitting, become an exercise in pain management after hip replacement surgery.

As you can imagine (or know firsthand) that a replaced joint will be very unstable and sore until it fully integrates itself into the body tissues, and can function as a normal joint again – and this is especially true of the hip.

After surgery, you will want to give the hip all the support it needs. A specifically designed hip brace stabilizer, will provide gentle pressure on the femur head to hold in place within the acetabulum socket. It will also limit the range of motion so that you don’t accidently over-extend the joint beyond its current (and temporary) limitations.

Hip brace supports like this will also ease the pain and discomfort of hip, by giving stability and a more secure feeling. You won’t feel as though you’re in danger of “popping” the joint out of place (even though the docs say it won’t happen – the thought is still there).

Hip Replacement

 

Using only a cane as my friend did, put his hip in serious danger of damage – it was totally unprotected in its vulnerable state.

Since movement is limited, the new joint parts are held together, and on a whole there is stability provided, the recovery and healing time will be reduced using hip brace supports ….. the best news of all!

My brother actually told me about hip replacement procedures and it’s probably a good thing not to go into details. If I were in this predicament (and hopefully it’s a long time off), I would opt for whatever equipment that would suffice to not just allow my hip to function back to normal at a faster rate, but to provide it the stability it needs while it goes through the integration process. That said, I’d be investing in the best brace possible.

    Thank you for your comments Todd. 

    Yes, let’s hope you never have to go through that type of procedure. As we both know, it can be brutal at best. Anyone who does have a hip replacement would do themselves a great favor by getting a brace that gives them the best support in as many ways as possible. 

    There’s an old adage that says “You’ll never be disappointed with the best”, and that applies to so many things in life. 

    To your continued good health!

Hey there!

Thank you for this post. It may create awareness to anybody who has the same condition.

I did not experience what it is all about and I cannot imagine how painful it become having a hip injury. The agonizing is really miserable.

By the way, hip brace stabilizer plays an important role to make hip stable after the operation.

    Yes, You’re right Joemer. 

    The hip joint is very vulnerable after the replacement surgery, and can use the additional support, stabilization, and compression that this type of brace provides. 

    Thank you for emphasising this point.

    All the best,

    Tom
