Best Shoulder Braces For Weightlifting

HOW CAN I PREVENT OR AVOID A SHOULDER INJURY WHEN WEIGHTLIFTING?

For weight trainers and physically active people the shoulder joint can be placed through a lot of stress and strain, especially during pressing movement. Bauerfeind shoulder braces and supports both protect and help with treatment and recovery through the provision of enhanced stability, proprioception and medical-grade compression. Some of the most common forms of injury 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, yet allowing full mobility. A good shoulder brace for weight lifting includes the OmoTrain, which relieves injured or strained shoulders.Protect your shoulder joint so you can bench, push and pull through multiple reps without injury.

 

HOW TO TREAT COMMON SHOULDER INJURIES FROM WEIGHTLIFTING 

  • 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.

WHAT HELPS SHOULDER PAIN WHEN LIFTING WEIGHTS


If you experience pain stop exercising immediately and apply an ice pack two to three times a day for 20 minutes. Take pain-relieving medication such as ibuprofen, and see your doctor to see if you have damage to your rotator-cuff.
