View Full Version : bruises on hips

Has anyone else had bruises on their hips from wearing the brace?
I'v got a boston brace.
A TLSO brace.
I have recently been molded for a new brace because by the looks of things my hips want to grow but can't because of brace.
Has anyone else had bruises on hips or anywhere with a brace?

I had bruises on both hips because of the brace. It was when I got a new brace or when I grew out of a brace. I also got rashes under my left armpit. Mum got some cushion plasters - can't remember the name - from the nurse which we stuck on the brace to make it more comfy.

Sudocrem and some large plasters helped. I put some large adhesive plasters and bandages around the bits of the brace where it was hurting me to try and make it sorfter.
My side just above my right and left hips are still off-colour after all the years of wearing the brace since it pushed in there for many years.
