Best Shoulder Braces For Volleyball

HOW CAN I PREVENT OR AVOID A SHOULDER INJURY WHILE PLAYING VOLLEYBALL?

Wearing a Bauerfeind brace or shoulder support can reduce your chances of injury through enhanced stability, proprioception (2) and moisture-wicking medical-grade compression. Some of the most common forms of injury while playing volleyball include rotator cuff tendinitis, bursitis, and rotator cuff tear. 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. A good shoulder brace for volleyball includes the OmoTrain, which relieves injured or strained shoulders. This added support will help stabilise your joint without limiting your ability to jump serve, block, spike a ball or off-speed hit.

WHY DOES MY SHOULDER HURT FROM VOLLEYBALL?


In volleyball, your shoulders are engaged when serving, spiking and blocking, which can lead to shoulder pain. Overuse or straining can lead to rotator cuff tendinitis or bursitis, which requires medical attention.

 

HOW TO TREAT A VOLLEYBALL SHOULDER INJURY? 

  • Strains or Sprains. Many sprains and strains can be treated with the RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. A physiotherapist can assist with the recovery as well. If the sprain is more severe you may require surgery.
  • Rotator Cuff Tear. Strengthening exercises from your physiotherapist can be a form of conservative treatment for rotator cuff tears. If your injury is severe with a full or partial tear of the muscle or tendons, surgery may be the most appropriate.
  • Rotator Cuff Tendinitis. Tendinitis occurs over time due to repetitive and prolonged shoulder movements, which results in inflamed or irritated tendons. It can be treated through adequate rest and avoidance of activities that cause pain, anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy and steroid injections. For more severe symptoms, surgery would be an appropriate treatment option.

Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent shoulder pain.
