Shoulder protection after reconstruction
Posted 05 March 2013 - 03:39 AM
I could never stand anything on my arms or shoulders whilst riding but I guess Ill have to change that now. Do you all wear pressure suits or some kind of shoulder brace? Is there a recommended thing?

My shoulder is healed now, so I can raise my arm straight, like a divers position. Before I couldnt do that.
I used to use a EVS shoulder brace. It helped give my shoulder support, especially when it was still healing. I would recommend that. You can also search in youtube on taping your shoulder. Which I think provides similar stability or maybe better since you can customize your brace. But such a hassle to take it off:)
Hope this helps!

Now I use a troy lee chest pro with shoulder pads. I think its the 5955 model.
I spoke to my dr and he said you usually dont dislocate a shoulder from falling on it. But you dislocate it when you stretch out your arm, lets say after an endo, which will dislocate it.
But at any case, I still wear my troy lee:)
