Clavicle Splint for Support and Immobilization
This clavicle fracture brace is a versatile one in that it can also be used as a posture control brace back support. This treatment for clavicle fracture injuries can hold the shoulder area in such a way that the collarbone has a chance to heal, or it can hold the shoulders back so that the body relearns to hold itself in an upright rather than a slouched manner.
This treatment for clavicle fracture injuries and posture minimizes any discomfort associated with use of a back or shoulder brace. Wide padding shields the skin from the straps of this shoulder splint and a felt back pad prevents any irritation where the straps meet and the tooth buckle closure is located. This felt padding is covered in knitted stockinette material.
A tooth buckle closure ensures that one can achieve a tight fit of the straps that ensures the brace will not slide about once it has been adjusted. Adjusting the tightness is also simple thanks to this closure.
The brace for treating clavicle fractures is also free of latex so that those with allergies to that material can use it.
Treatment for Clavicle Fracture & Posture Problems
The figure-8 design of this splint for clavicle fracture treatment holds the shoulders in a retracted position, which helps keep the clavicle bone in alignment as it heals. It also gives this area of the body a rest. An arm or shoulder sling is another option for immobilizing the clavicle area.
The success of such figure-8 clavicle supports hinges upon them fitting correctly. For this reason, the adjustable tooth buckle closure this BraceAbility clavicle support is beneficial.
