Hip Compression Wrap for Hip Pain Treatment
This hip wrap holds two 6 inch x 10 inch cold therapy gel packs against the body for hip bursitis treatment and other conditions or injuries that cause discomfort in the hip region. One gel pack goes at the front of the hip while the other is situated at the back. If desired, one can also use these removable gel packs one at a time.
Anyone who has iced a body part before has likely experienced the unpleasantness of a wet ice pack. Thus a welcome feature of this hip ice pack wrap is its hydrophobic barrier for control of condensation. See more products for cold, heat and compression therapy.
One need not worry about sizing or fit of this treatment for hip pain. The hip compression sleeve comes in a universal size. Another unique feature in this bursitis hip treatment is its straps are detachable, which allows for a better fit and improved compression. Also, the wrap treatment of hip pain works for either the right or left hip.
Treatment for Hip Bursitis and Upper Leg Injuries
Throughout the body one has bursae—small, fluid-filled sacs that act as cushions between bones and soft tissues to reduce friction. Certain conditions or actions, like putting repetitive stress on the hips, calcium deposits, spine disease or differing leg lengths can irritate the bursae and cause them to become inflamed. This is known as bursitis.
There are two major bursae in the hip vicinity that are prone to bursitis—one at the bony part of the hip bone called the greater trochanter and the other on the inside of the hip, causing pain in the groin area. If groin pain is from another source, one should take a look at the Cramer Hip & Groin Spica Wrap.
Activity adjustment, the use of assistive devices like crutches, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory pain relievers or an injection can all help the painful inflammation a subside. Icing the sore hip can also help control inflammation. The compression this cold therapy hip wrap provides also helps reduce inflammation and promotes blood flow.
In rare cases, surgery is necessary for hip injury treatment. Following such procedures, one will also likely need to ice the hip frequently throughout the day. Again, this cold hip compression support makes it easy to do so and increases one’s mobility while icing a hip injury. The hydrophobic barrier material and its condensation controlling properties is an added bonus.
Icing is a common treatment method when it comes to injuries throughout the body, hence its inclusion in the common treatment acronym RICE (rest, ice, compress, elevate). Not surprisingly, this cold therapy hip wrap can help with a number of other sources of hip-pain. Some of the more common causes of hip pain that can be addressed (in part) with cold therapy include:
- Arthritis (one of the most common)
- Hip fractures
- Muscle or tendon strains
