Common types of shoulder support include:

  • shoulder wraps
  • shoulder straps
  • shoulder sleeves
  • shoulder immobilizers
  • shoulder slings / arm slings
  • clavicle braces / posture correctors

The most common reasons for shoulder bracing are:

  • posture support / correction
  • sports injury or work injury prevention
  • post-operative or post-injury shoulder immobilization
  • joint and arm support during sport, exercise, or physiotherapy

Today’s shoulder and arm supports are made from light, comfortable materials and come in a variety of colours and styles. They may even be covered by your extended health or other insurance plans.

The staff at Main Street Health will show you the options and help you choose the best brace for your personal needs when you book an appointment.

Benefits of Shoulder Support

Like any joint, shoulders are at risk for pain and injury at work, during sports or exercise, and even from daily activities. Shoulder supports help reduce this risk so that you can continue to perform at your optimal level.

The main advantages of shoulder-arm support are:

  • reduced risk of shoulder dislocation or injury
  • less pain and swelling after injury or surgery
  • faster healing after injury or surgery, less risk of re-injury
  • increased shoulder stability, better back and arm support

To learn more about the many shoulder support options and find the one that’s right for you, book an appointment at Main Street Health.
