Shoulder Joint Support for Immobilisation
An shoulder sling is a simple shoulder immobiliser typically manufactured from cotton or a synthetic material to offer comfort to the wearer and is worn following surgery or a trauma related injury such as a trip or fall.The sling helps support your arm after injury or surgery on the arm, shoulder or collarbone. Some people only need it for a short period of time, while others will wear a sling for many weeks. Regardless of how you ended up with it, wearing a shoulder sling can be a challenge.
When you have a fractured shoulder, or a fractured wrist or elbow, you may be recommended to wear an Shoulder Sling. In case of fracture, no matter of which body part, it is very essential not to move that part of your body to ensure proper healing of the bone. As said earlier, the arm sling helps your arm to keep it in place against your body and that helps in faster healing.
The shoulder sling works by immobilising the arm and shoulder by raising the arm and restricting its movement. The arm sits within a material based sling attached to a strap which loops round the patient’s neck to help elevate the arm. The strap can be adjusted manually depending on the patient’s height and arm length, but a professional will always set this before you leave the hospital to ensure that it is fitted accurately.
