Re: Hip Brace

I will need a hip replacement in the future but still want to play competitive sports. I'm looking for a brace that can possibly absorb the shock of running and jumping. I have little or no cartilage in my hip from too many games. I find I can continue by putting a tourniquet that creates a slight hip separation but my leg muscles take up the stress. I have to tighten it when sprinting and let it loose when I come to a rest. Any ideas??????? My orthopedic surgeon tells me to just stop sprinting and jumping.

Anatomically knitted knee support incorporating contoured silicone insert surrounding the patella: The kinetically integrated guide counteracts lateralization of the pattella. During activity the insert not only counteracts patellar malalignment but provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
