Designed to combine the benefits of cold and compression therapy, here are some reasons to use PowerPlay’s hip wrap:
- Hemiarthroplasty: A hemiarthroplasty is half of a hip replacement and is a rare surgery, typically only performed after a traumatic injury. Recovery is similar to post-hip arthroplasty and will require rest and physical therapy. PowerPlay’s hip wrap can aid in recovery during or between physical therapy surgeries.
- Hip resurfacing: Hip resurfacing can be done in place of a total hip surgery, cold and compression therapy can assist with reducing pain and swelling after this procedure.
- Hip replacements: On average, it takes about a month to recover from a hip replacement surgery. While physical therapy starts prior to a hip replacement surgery, applying cold compression therapy between appointments or at post-op PT can help stimulate faster recovery.
- Bursitis: The inflammation of the bursa, a closed fluid-filled sac that reduces friction between tissue, is common for hip joints. This can be treated with devices made to reduce pain and swelling. Combine over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication with PowerPlay’s cold sequential compression therapy for reduced swelling.
