HOW CAN I PREVENT OR AVOID A SHOULDER INJURY WHILE PLAYING RUGBY?
As rugby is a fast paced, high contact sport, there’s a high risk of developing a shoulder injury.
Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or shoulder support can reduce your chances of injury through enhanced stability, proprioception and moisture-wicking medical-grade compression.
Some of the most common forms of injury while playing rugby include rotator cuff tears, fractures, and shoulder joint dislocations.
Take a look at Manly's Brendon Elliot wearing the Bauerfeind OmoTrain.
Bauerfeind shoulder braces have a unique design that guides and centres the arm in the socket to ensure a stable shoulder without causing any restrictions to movement.
The Omotrain guides and centres the arm in the socket so the shoulder maintains proper natural movement, without impacting your mobility.
Strapping runs across back and hips, so it won't impinge upon the chest area. The OmoTrain can be worn on either the left or right shoulder.
This added support will help stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to jump serve, block, spike a ball or off-speed hit

Great to have Manly Sea Eagles player Brendan Elliot come in earlier this month for some extra support for his shoulder, hamstring and some pretty serious compression gear for recovery 💪 . . . #brendanelliot #manlyseaeagles #rugbyleague #rugby #aussiefootball #bauerfeind #bauerfeindaustralia #motionislife #football #league #vip #gym #rugbyplayer #rugbyfamily #sport #rugbylife #workout #nrl
