Shoulder Braces, Support and Wraps
Shoulder Support & Braces
Shoulder problems are extremely common, manifesting in sore muscles and various aches and pains. Shoulder pain derives from overuse, injuries or just plain old age and a Shoulder support is needed to alleviate these aches and pains. A shoulder brace, such as the McDavid Thermal Shoulder Wrap (463), is ideal for acute and chronic injuries. It has been designed to give relief to people with a rotator cuff injury, as well as general shoulder injuries.
Every time you move your arms, your shoulders move too. The shoulder is a ball and socket joint. This joint has the largest range of motion of any joint in the human body. It is precisely because of its extensive range of motion that a shoulder injury is a common occurrence.
There are various types of injury which can benefit from wearing shoulder braces such as sprains, strains and rotator cuff injuries. Contrary to popular opinion, rotator cuff injuries occur in both sporty and non-sporty people and develop due to overuse, muscle imbalances, aging and general deterioration of the tendons. Rotator cuff shoulder support is essential for rehabilitation of the joint, giving stability, shoulder compression and thermal therapy.
Wearing a shoulder brace for sports is advisable for anyone who has sore shoulder muscles or shoulder pain. Shoulder support not only helps prevent further injuries, it also speeds up the healing process. A shoulder support brace can be easy to wear, lightweight and fits by the right and left shoulder.
