Shoulder supports are most often worn by people who have sustained an injury and want to ease pain and improve mobility in the longer term by supporting the injured muscle joint and tendons preventing further damage.
Shoulder supports or braces can help injured and disabled people in a number of ways, by restricting movement the shoulder joint itself is prevented from being manipulated into a vulnerable position that may increase the chances of it becoming dislocated. Once the shoulder joint has been injured or dislocated in the past there is a far greater chance of this same injury recurring, as the tendons and ligaments may have been strained or weakened.
Shoulder braces also offer the skin and muscle tissue surrounding an injury vital support by way of compression aiding the swift recovery of the swollen area. This feeling of compression with a well fitted snug shoulder support also aids the wearer to be more aware of the position of the shoulder joint in everyday activities. This helps the person to avoid sudden movements of the shoulder or incorrect posture when lifting,carrying, throwing and even more mundane movements such as reaching or even writing that can cause a weakened shoulder further stress and possible injury.
All our braces allow the shoulder of the wearer to heal and strengthen by gently working the muscles around the shoulder by increasing or decreasing the resistance as the wearer moves their arms, but without putting the joint in a compromised position.
Our shoulder supports are easily fastened, comfortable, strong but durable and lightweight to wear meaning they can happily be worn all day.
