Best Shoulder Braces For AC Joint Separation

HOW CAN I RELIEVE PAIN FROM AN AC JOINT SEPARATION?

The shoulder joint is formed through the unity of 3 bones: the collarbone, shoulder blade arm bone. An AC joint separation occurs when collarbone separates from the shoulder blade, usually due to a fall on the area or from direct trauma (e.g. contact sports). Typical symptoms include pain and swelling around the joint, limited range of movement and instability.

Bauerfeind’s high-quality braces and supports are designed with medical-grade compression to target the symptoms that are associated with AC joint separation. The soft knit delivers the ultimate comfort and has supports embedded to provide an intermittent massage effect for improved circulation. This added support will help to stabilise your joint for optimal protection to help you recover with as minimal limitations to every day activities as possible.

HOW TO TREAT PAIN CAUSED BY AC JOINT SEPARATION? 

 

  • Rest. Avoid moving your arms in positions that could aggravate it (e.g. overhead reaching).
  • Icing. Apply ice on the area that is swollen and inflamed for 15 minutes, every 4 hours during the first few days until swelling subsides.
  • Physical therapy. Your physiotherapist may prescribe you with specific stretching and strengthening exercises for your rotator cuff muscles.
  • Anti-inflammatory medicines. Medications may be prescribed by your doctor to ease pain and inflammation.
  • Severe or persistent pain should be investigated by your doctor or physiotherapist.
