View Full Version : Sore Hip! Need Help! (spinecor)

01-30-2008, 11:26 PM
hey, im in the spinecor right now... and the belt around the hip is really hurting my right hip. :eek: . if this has happened to anybody else before or if anybody has any ideas of how i can make it stop hurting, you'd really be a life saver! or maybe in this case... a surgery saver (hopefully!!) :)

p.s. ive tried padding and it doesnt really help :confused:

Hi Esme

My daughter had a red wear spot just above her left hip. It took a while but now the skin has "toughened up" and it doesn't even bother her anymone.
Dr. Coillard gave us a pad that slides right on to the strap. That did help. I am sure if you called Montreal they will send one out to you.

try to make your skin more resistant to presure, you can do that by using alcohol (( 70 % ) rubbing alcohol) don't rub it but 'pad'it on to the red spot of your skin, be sure that your skin is not damaged other wise it will hurt.here in holland we have something they call 'campferspiritus' i dont know how they call it in englisch but it has a better sent than pure alcohol. i hope you have some use of this information

My daughter had the same problem. We used two layers of mole skin on her hip. It stays on in the wash. We put it on when she first started with her brace and it is still on a year later.

Also, you can ask the Orthodontics brace guy is it is fitting correctly, scolioswimmer need to have adjustments made to hers.
