Shoulder injuries are often caused by sports or activities that involve repetitive and overhead motion, such as tennis and weightlifting. Some everyday activities like cleaning walls, hanging curtains and gardening can also injure your shoulder. Shoulder injuries involve the tendons, muscles, and tendons rather than the bones. Feeling stiff or lack of the strength in your shoulder can be early signs of a shoulder injury.
Wearing a shoulder brace can help to rest the shoulder by immobilizing it when you are recovering from a shoulder injury. Shoulder braces and supports are effective for preventing re-injury by offering strength and stability to the injured shoulder. Cold therapy can also be used in conjunction with shoulder braces to reduce swelling and inflammation.
