Hip and Groin Wrap
This unique groin brace can provide relief and protection for a number of injuries to the hip or groin. Specifically, this groin spica can help with:
- Groin strains
- Groin pulls
- Hip abductor injuries
- Hip flexor strains
- Hip tendonitis
- Hip arthritis
- Post-pregnancy pubic symphysis dysfunction
How does the groin strain brace work? Well, the support wraps around both the waist and the upper thigh. The hip part of the groin strain support has holes to make it breathable, while the leg portion of the groin strain wrap is non-perforated neoprene that provides heat and warmth to the injured area.
This groin support is also helpful for pubic symphysis dysfunction following pregnancy because it isolates the inner thigh muscles so that they contract less while one is walking.
The hip wrap is constructed of durable neoprene. The solid end for wrapping makes the hip spica easy to apply, as does the hook and loop closure.
Also in the interests of convenience, the pulled groin wrap can be used for either leg. And there is no need to worry about sizing—one size fits most.
The hip brace is low-profile as well as lightweight. This means it can easily be worn under one’s clothes and even during athletic activity. The breathable nature of the hip area is definitely an advantage from a sports use standpoint. See more hip supports and hip braces.
Hip Pain and Groin Strain Treatment
There are a number of things that can cause pain in the inner thigh or hip, ranging from mechanical dysfunction of the joint to congenital conditions causing joint wear and tear to damage to the tendons, cartilage or muscles of this area stemming from deep flexion, quick turns or starts or trauma in sports. In some cases, the symptoms of a sports hernia are sometimes mistaken for a groin pull or strain. If that is the case, you’ll be happy to hear BraceAbility also offers a number hernia belts.
Initial treatment of such injuries typically involves following the steps of rest, ice, compression and elevation (RICE) and taking pain medications. (Check out some of BraceAbility’s cold therapy products.) This groin and hip spica helps with the compression aspect of these steps. Plus it adds support to the hip joint.
Following a pull or strain of the groin muscle, one may need to partake in physical therapy to improve the strength and flexibility of this area of the body. This spica hip brace can be worn during such activities. In terms of prevention, warming up prior to athletic activity is important, as is gradually (as opposed to suddenly) increasing one’s level of activity.
