After a shoulder injury of any kind, the joint needs time to heal. Whether you needed surgery or not, you will want to alleviate any weight or stress off of the joint that you can. This means that you will need a shoulder support of some type to help you reduce the movement and pressure.
We can help you find just the right brace for your situation. Patients who have injuries that do not require surgery and patients who are in post-operative recovery can find help through the different types of braces that we offer. From clavicle supports to the traditional sling, we carry a wide range of shoulder braces that can aid you in your recovery.
When you meet with our professional therapists at your first appointment, they will help you decide which support is the right choice for you. If you’ve already had a recommendation made to you by a medical professional, we can help you find that product as well! Our team is here to help, so please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Some of the products we carry as far as shoulder braces are slings, collar bone supports, wraps, and rotator cuff specific braces. Whatever your injury is, we can help you find a brace that guides the joint through recovery and allows you to manage the pain!
As you recover, it is important to remember that the body is trying to heal itself. You need to give the shoulder the time and rest it needs to get back to full strength. This means absolutely no lifting of any objects with that arm. Even if you feel like it’s healed, talk to your doctor before you start back to your normal activities. Especially athletes need to be careful returning to the field as a reinjury can be even more damaging than the first!
