Hip dysplasia occurs when the joint is not properly formed, causing pain and misalignement and often leading to a whole range of complications and other health issues. While extensive physiotherapy and occupational therapy can help, using assistive technologies like hip dysplasia braces can make a massive difference. Providing mobility, pain relief and stability, wearing a hip dysplasia brace is one of the best ways to provide accessibility and independence for those affected.
Bauerfeind have spent decades extensively researching and clinically testing supports to get the very best for people who suffer from hip dysplasia.
Who is affected by hip dysplasia?
While it's common amongst more serious disabilities like cerebral palsy, hip dysplasia can also affect those with traumatic physical injury, connective tissue disorders, dislocation issues as well as women post-pregnancy.
