Will this brace work well for shoulder dislocation and instability? Will this brace work well for baseball? Can you throw and catch freely or does it restrict your movement extensively.
Question by: Janelle on Mar 24, 2010, 9:43 AM
This shoulder brace is intended for shoulder dislocation and should instability. It will help stabilize the shoulder and reduce the risk of shoulder dislocation, but it is by no means going to provide absolute protection as with any shoulder brace of this kind. Since the brace is made out of neoprene it is stretchy and will work well for baseball. You can control the amount of support or limit your range of motion with the strapping system as well. You should be able to move fairly normally in the brace, but keep in mind that in order to stabilize and protect your shoulder the brace needs to limit some range of motion.

my dad is 81 years old and has a bad rotator cuff. He thinks he is too old for surgery and I kind of agree, with rehab up to six months, for him it would be a little much. Would this Sully shoulder brace help relieve some of the pain he has when he moves quickly. Also , he loves to fish and would this help?

This brace is fairly easy to get on and off so it should work well for your father. It will provide some nice support and stability to his shoulder and the warmth of the material will ease some pain as well. Fishing and other light activities should be just fine in this shoulder brace.

I play Wide Receiver in football and Outfield in baseball ... I suffered my first dislocated shoulder to my throwing arm. Once I am cleared to play (about a month or so more of therapy), will this brace protect against another dislocation? Also, will I be able to throw and swing a bat while wearing the brace? Will I be able to catch a pass over my head? Thank you very much for taking the time to answer my question.
Question by: Mike on Aug 6, 2010, 7:02 AM
Thank you for your questions!
I'll answer your questions regarding the DonJoy Sully Shoulder Support below:
Will this brace protect against another dislocation?
- The DonJoy Sully Shoulder Support will not prevent another dislocation, but it does lower the chances of it occurring again.
Will I be able to throw and swing a bat while wearing the brace?
- You will be able to swing and throw, however any support will hinder range of motion.
Will I be able to catch a pass over my head?
- Again yes, however any support will hinder range of motion. Because this is a light support, the hindrance will be significantly less than other shoulder supports.
Thanks for visiting us at BetterBraces.com with your questions!

I have had reconstruction of a torn rotator cuff twice. I have a very loose shoulder joint and I am a very agressive snowmobiler. I am looking for the proper stabilizer to aid in preventing dislocation. Being a female, it looks like all of the shoulder braces ride right across the breast area. ouch!! What would give me the best stability and comfort? Thanks.
Question by: Traci on Oct 19, 2010, 3:00 PM
The DonJoy Sully Shoulder Support would be my recommendation. The material is more conforming than the DonJoy Shoulder Stabilizer.
If you are looking for simply the best stability and comfort is less of a concern, I go with the DonJoy Shoulder Stabilizer.

I'm a basketball player can I play wearing this, or is this for just wearing around?
Question by: Whitley on Oct 27, 2010, 8:46 PM
The DonJoy Sully Shoulder Support is designed to be used during play.
Answer by: Admin on Oct 27, 2010, 8:46 PM
My son is 13 and has dislocated his shoulder 3 times in the last year. He plays AAA Hockey which brace would be better suited for him the Sully or the Donjoy. He loves the game and it would be nice if he could still play at any level.
I have had several shoulder sublaxations. My doctor says I have a partially torn labrum. I am in the middle of basketball season and have rested it for three weeks. Doctor says I can play again. Will this brace help my shoulder from coming out of socket.
Question by: Dennis on Dec 26, 2010, 5:25 AM
This brace will assist in preventing the shoulder from coming out of the socked, however you'll want to consult with your doctor to determine the best type of shoulder brace for your condition.

My daughter has slightly elongated ligaments in her sholder and loves basketball, however occasionaly has pain do to the instability of her sholder. Would this support help?
Also how do you measure the chest size, is it just below the bust for women, or across the bust?
Question by: Cindy C on Jan 28, 2011, 4:13 AM
The DonJoy Sully Shoulder Stabilizer will help provide your daughter with controlled range of motion while being active. It is to stabilize and restrict motion of the shoulder, in the direction of her shoulder instabilities, while still allowing her to be active and participate in sports. This brace is a great option for basketball players. As far as measuring for a female you will want to measure her across her bust to get the optimal fit for her.
