Whether it's tendonitis of the rotator cuff or a partial or full tear, recovering the shoulder joint like this often requires immobilisation for a period of time. Slinging the shoulder joint is the best way to do this, but with cheap fabric slings from the hospital or chemist often causing as many problems as they solve, finding a rotator cuff sling that works properly can be tricky.
Thankfully Bauerfeind makes this easy, with our sling for rotator cuff injury. Using lightweight and comfortable materials and simple anatomic design, our rotator cuff sling allows for any kind of movement while keeping the shoulder in place.
Can't I just use a support instead of a sling?
Wearing a sling is the best way to recover from a rotator cuff tear as it allows the tendons and surrounding muscles to heal properly without strain or stress. You can choose to wear a shoulder support instead that allows you to move completely, but this will impair the recovery of the joint.
Can I still play sports in these?
Virtually all of our supports are designed for active use, whether it's on the sports field, in the gym, or just for a run around the block.�
