Shoulder and Neck Braces for Optimal Relief
Anyone who likes to play sports or working out knows how easy it is to injure your shoulder. In fact, around 7% of the population reportedly suffers from shoulder pain, according to a study published in Rheumatology. Some other studies say that this figure can be as high as 20%. The prevalence increases with age. If you’re slightly off form during an overhead lift, you could end up twisting your shoulder. Similarly, a knock during football practice could easily lead to shoulder dislocation. Even the wrong sleep position can cause shoulder injury!
Recovering from these injuries can be a long and painful process. They might even require surgical procedures. But there is a way to speed up recovery and relieve the pain. That is by using the highest quality shoulder brace, available right here at Aidfull.
What is a Brace?
A brace is medical equipment that provides support to joints and muscles. There are different braces for different parts of the body. A brace provides stabilization, support and compression to the joints, tissues and skin in and around the injured area. They can also help immobilize the joint, if required. In most cases, braces are made of a combination of hard materials, such as plastics, along with fabrics.
At Aidfull, we use the best quality materials to manufacture braces. Most of our braces are made using polypropylene plastic and neoprene. Polypropylene plastic makes the braces extremely tough, without making them heavy. Neoprene is a moisture wicking material that makes the brace breathable, keeping your skin dry. This means you can wear our braces throughout the day without feeling any discomfort.
When Do You Need Shoulder or Neck Braces?
Some of the injuries and conditions that could benefit from our neck or shoulder brace are:
Rotator Cuff Tear
Around 2 million people in America visit a doctor each year due to a rotator cuff tear. The rotator cuff is a group of tendons and muscles surrounding the shoulder joint. As you might have guessed, they are extremely important for the proper functioning of the shoulder. They ensure that your upper arm’s bone head stays in the shoulder socket. Rotator cuff tears are common among people with jobs that require repeated overhead motion. These include electricians, painters and carpenters. This condition can also be caused by a single injury. The Aidfull shoulder compression brace with adjustable support is a great choice for recovering from a rotator cuff tear.
There are small, fluid-filled sacs, inside each of your shoulders, called bursa. They help lower the friction between the different bones of the shoulder joint. But at times, the bursa can get inflamed. This causes a condition called bursitis. It can be caused by rheumatoid arthritis, injury, or shoulder overuse.
This is an injury in which the upper arm bone falls out of the cup-like socket of your shoulder. Since the shoulder is the most mobile joint of the body, it is prone to dislocation. A dislocated shoulder is generally caused by a sudden blow. A shoulder can also get dislocated due to extreme rotation of the shoulder joint. This commonly occurs in sports-related injuries or due to a fall. A shoulder brace can be great for recovering from this condition.
The shoulder contains a tissue that holds the shoulder joint together. This tissue is known as the shoulder capsule. Sometimes, this tissue can become thick and hard, making it hard to move the shoulder. This condition is known as frozen shoulder. The reasons for this condition are not clear. But its prevalence increases with old.
There are cushions in between the bones of our vertebrae, known as discs. Sometimes, a fragment of these discs can get pushed out into the spinal canal. This generally happens because of a rupture or tear in the annulus. Some herniated discs may have no symptoms, while others could affect the nerves nearby, causing numbness, pain and weakness. For herniated discs that occur in the cervical spine (the neck), choose the Aidfull neck braces.
Whiplash is a neck injury caused by rapid, forceful back and forth neck movements, similar to the cracking of a whip. This rapid motion can injure the bones, discs in the vertebrae, ligaments, muscles and other neck tissues. Whiplash is generally caused by auto accidents or an injury during contact sports.
Neck and Shoulder Braces for Every Need
At Aidfull, we offer a wide range of shoulder and neck braces:
Shoulder Compression Brace
These braces provide medium to strong levels of support to your shoulder. They also come with compression technology. This helps is relieving the build-up of fluids and blood in the affected area, which could otherwise lead to inflammation. This results in reduced swelling and pain, and faster recovery. It is highly adjustable and can be worn during sports as well as daily activities. It can even stabilize shoulder movement, while you sleep. Our shoulder braces can provide relief from tendonitis, frozen shoulder, AC separation, bursitis, labarum tear, rotator cuff tear, dislocated shoulder, shoulder muscle soreness, stiff joints, and post-op recovery.
A cervical collar helps support the spinal cord and neck. It also limits the movement of the neck and the head. They are used for short periods to help you recover from injuries. Our cervical collars can be used for mild neck injuries, herniated discs, whiplash and muscle weakness. The collars are easy to wear and take off, and comfortable to wear.
Cervical Traction Pillow
A cervical traction pillow lifts your head to the right height, while keeping your neck in a neutral position. They are used when you are sleeping on your side or your back. It helps keep the neck in the optimal lordotic curve. This makes sleeping a lot more comfortable and reduces the chances of injury. Cervical traction pillows can relieve stress in the neck muscles and joints.
