Rotator Cuff Tear/Injury Braces
If you have suffered a torn rotator cuff, it is extremely important to immobilize your shoulder with a splint or brace as you wait to see your physician. Ice therapy can help relieve the pain and we have a variety of shoulder specific ice wraps
that will be beneficial. If you have just had surgery, it is also important to wear a splint to prevent any accidental movement or bump to the shoulder as that can further injure the torn rotator cuff. Rotator cuff tears can happen at any age, take precaution and strengthen your shoulders. Use our guided tool, Brace Advisor
for additional help in selecting the right brace for your rotator cuff.
About the Rotator Cuff
The shoulder is one of the most mobile joints in the human body as it has an extremely wide range of motion. The rotator cuff tendons are key to the mobility and healthy functioning of the shoulder. They are subject to a lot of wear and tear, or degeneration, as we use our arms. Tearing of the rotator cuff tendons is an especially painful injury. A torn rotator cuff creates a very weak shoulder. Most of the time, individuals with torn rotator cuffs are in late middle age, but rotator cuffs tears can happen at any age, especially to active individuals that play contact sports. Rotator cuff shoulder braces
can help aid in recovery by immobilizing your shoulder and can keep the shoulder joint in the correct position after a rotator cuff injury.
