This collar and cuff sling is uniquely designed to treat numerous injuries to the wrist, arm, shoulder, and hand.
Common injuries requiring a cuff sling such as this include clavicle fractures, humerus fractures, shoulder or arm dislocations, wrist and hand fractures/sprains, post shoulder surgery, and more.
Featuring a tubular neck pad and flannel lined wrist cuff, this cuff collar sling is extremely soft against the skin, providing optimal comfort to the patient while wearing.
This sling for collarbone pain is designed to support the arm, shoulder, wrist, and hand after injury or surgery. It may also be used to limit movement or to elevate the arm to reduce pain and inflammation following injury or surgery.
The flannel lined wrist cuff is secured with a Velcro strap, making application and adjustability quick and uncomplicated for the user. The sling itself is also adjustable, allowing the patient to modify the length of the collarbone sling and the position of the hand and wrist.
Wearing a sling for broken collarbones will inhibit harmful movements that could worsen one's injury or disrupt the healing process. In addition to the R.I.C.E guidelines, wearing an arm sling for broken collarbones will encourage healing and allow one to return to regular movements quicker.
The collarbone runs between the top of the sternum and the shoulder blade, helping to connect the arm to the rest of the body.
A broken collarbone is generally the result of a direct fall or collision to the shoulder, or a hard fall onto an outstretched arm. Broken collarbones are one of the most common sports injuries, especially in contact sports or other sports involving risk of a hard fall.
Most collarbone fractures will heal on their own as long as the arm is properly immobilized in a sling for broken collarbones such as this one. Collarbone fractures should also be treated with ice and physical therapy depending on the severity of one's injury.
In some cases, if the collarbone is significantly displaced or the break is severe, surgery may be necessary to realign the bone. A cuff sling is also useful following surgery for collarbone fractures and shoulder dislocations.
In the case of fractures to the wrist, hand, and arm, one will likely have a cast or wear a sling, or in some cases both. Doing so will immobilize these injured areas to promote rapid healing and prevent harmful movements. Following removal of a cast, a sling is very beneficial to reduce swelling and pain.
