The DonJoy Shoulder Stabilizer Shoulder Pad Attachment (SPA) will definitely help prevent the shoulders from "popping out".
Unfortunately any shoulder brace will limit the range of motion slightly, however the brace will also serve to remind the player of an existing injury as well as providing support The DonJoy Shoulder Stabilizer and the DonJoy Shoulder Stabilizer Shoulder Pad Attachment are both designed to be worn during contact sports, such as football.
Thank you for your time,
There will be some limitation in motion as when wearing any brace. However the DonJoy Shoulder Stabilizer Shoulder Pad Attachment (SPA) is excellent at preventing further dislocation, and will help raise awareness of the potential to dislocate.
Bilateral shoulder stabilizers are made as a custom brace so you would need to see a DJO Sales rep to get this done. You can find your local sales rep by following this link: http://www.djoglobal.com/contact-us/sales-rep-locator
Which brace depends on what you want the brace to do and what motions do you need the brace to limit. The Shoulder stabilizer will only limit shoulder abduction and exteral rotation, but the Sully will limit multi-directional instabilities. The DonJoy Sales rep should be able to help you choose if you tell them what type of surgery your son has had
