In brief: Biomechanics

Orthotics help with your gait and can take the strain off of the hip but it will not straighten the hip.

In brief: Possibly

Orthotics or orthoses help the base or foundation of your body, they could help a hip problem if its foot related.

In brief: Could help

You will need a complete evaluation, however if the hip pain is caused by imbalance in the foot or a limb length discrepancy an orthotic with a heel lift could be useful.
