Why Should I Wear an Arm Support Brace After Surgery
Following a shoulder injury or operation, the proper position of the weakened arm and shoulder are crucial to ensure protection and healing. The use of a post-surgery sling will also help limit the motion of your shoulder as you heal. Not wearing the arm sling correctly, or at all can result in a major delay in your recovery time, as well as potentially causing more injury to your arm or shoulder. If you’ve just had a rotator cuff, dislocation, or capsule repair surgery, wearing an arm immobilizer brace such as this one will be an effective way to speed up recovery time and prevent further injury.
