This support can help with rotator cuff injury treatment and other shoulder injuries requiring immobilization. The rotator cuff brace can also help following some surgical procedures, such as S/P glenohumeral acromioplasty surgery.
The sling along with the strap around the waist immobilizes the arm against the body as part of injured shoulder treatment. This gives the shoulder, arm, etc. a chance to heal. And the thumb loop provides a more comfortable experience as it supports the wrist. BraceAbility offers a wide variety of shoulder braces and slings with a range of price tags and immobilization methods.
This particular injured shoulder sling is constructed of soft but durable tricot material. The unique weave of this non-elastic material is what makes it sturdy and resistant to wear but still soft.
The fastener at the top of the sling envelope makes this shoulder abduction sling easy to apply and to adjust.
The group of muscles and tendons surrounding the shoulder joint are key not only for motion but also for simply holding the top of the arm bone within the shoulder socket. Injuries to these tissues can cause pain, disrupt sleep, complicate daily activities and weaken the arm.
Conservative modes of treatment are often sufficient for allowing this type of shoulder injury to heal. Resting the arm is an important component of treating a rotator cuff injury, as is applying ice and engaging in physical therapy. Disregarding the rehab component of treatment can lead to a thickening of the connective tissue—a problematic condition known as frozen shoulder.
A severe rotator cuff tear that involves a complete muscle or tendon tear in the shoulder may require surgery. After surgery, one will likely need to immobilize the shoulder via a shoulder sling like this one or other shoulder supports. See more shoulder braces for post-operative use.
This sling for shoulder injuries has a number of features aimed at user comfort as well as for effective immobilization of the shoulder
