EVS Shoulder Brace

5 posts in this topic

I dislocated my shoulder and bought one for the added support. I used it several times for skiing and twice for moto.

It definitely adds that little extra support that you may be looking for. I don't think that it would prevent another dislocation though. It did make the shoulder feel more stable while it was still weak though. Plus, I think it gave me the added mental strength to start using the shoulder again.

I don't wear it anymore since I have recovered about 95% back to normal.

Let me know if you want more info.

did you wear it all day? even at night?

I only wore mine when I was doing active things, like skiing or riding.

I don't know how bad your shoulder was injured, but if it feels good to wear it, I don't see any harm in weraing it all day. Except, it may reduce your mobility. Even though it hurt, I tried to move my arm around to keep it from getting too tight and losing range of motion. I also did rehab for it at the gym.

However, I don't know about your particular situation and don't want to give out bad/wrong advice.

I adjusted mine so that it gave support, but was not cutting into my arm, or chest. It was pretty comfortable and I forgot I had it on after about 15 minutes of wearing it.
