Elevated Arm Sling for Broken or Dislocated Shoulder
There are a number of injuries and conditions in which an immobilizing arm sling may be necessary. Most injuries of the shoulder involve the ligaments, muscles, and tendons.
The most common shoulder injuries are caused by repetition and overuse of the shoulder. These injuries are common among athletes who frequently use their shoulders in the same motion, such as swimmers, tennis and baseball players, or lifters.
If one’s shoulder is dislocated, one will first need to seek the help of a medical professional to get the top of the shoulder bone back in its socket. Afterward, rest and immobilization via a shoulder sling will be needed to allow the shoulder to recover and prevent the weakened joint from slipping back out of place.
A rotator cuff tear is also a common injury requiring a sling arm support for immobilization. The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that help hold the head of the humerus bone in the shoulder socket.
Minor tears to this group of soft tissues can usually be treated via rest through the use of an arm sling. If a full tear of the rotator cuff occurs, surgery may be necessary to repair the damage.
