Shoulder injuries often involve the rotator cuff muscles or tendons, AC joint ligaments, and labral cartilage. A traumatic injury may result in a shoulder separation, clavicle fracture, rotator cuff tear, or dislocation. Shoulder pain also may be caused by repetitive throwing or overhead routines that inflame the muscles and tendons. Often after an injury or surgery, a doctor will order a shoulder sling or brace. A brace can help protect the shoulder and stabilize the injured joint and tissues. Bracing combined with a cryotherapy device, such as the Aircast Cryo/Cuff Shoulder, can considerably decrease pain and expedite recovery. Use of strengthening and rehabilitation products can assist with mobility, proprioception, and a quicker return to activity.
