Why You Need This Clavicle Bracket for Clavicle Fracture Repair and Posture Correction
The clavicle (clavicular) is one of the most common fractured or fractured bones in the human body. This injury is usually seen in young children, adults involved in high-intensity sports, or anyone who spends a lot of time playing high-contact sports such as football or rugby. Clavicle fractures can also be caused by trauma such as a car accident or a serious fall.
This Figure 8 Clavicle Band is specifically designed to help treat clavicle fractures, clavicle fractures, dislocated clavicle and postoperative pain by providing optimal support and fixation in the area.
What does a clavicle fracture feel like?
Clavicle fractures are usually obvious. When it happens, you may feel the cracks. Then, you may experience some of the following symptoms:
inability to move your arms and shoulders
swelling and pain around the collarbone
Lump or deformity around the broken area
A rubbing sensation when you try to lift your arm
sagging or sagging shoulders
Can this collarbone brace be used as a postural support?
This upper back support can also be used as a posture trainer to help prevent your hunched back. This is thanks to the figure-8 design that wraps around your shoulders and crosses at the back, gently pulling your shoulders back. This design helps retrain the back muscles to maintain an upright, slack posture and keep the spine properly aligned and straight.
However, if you're looking for a posture corrector specifically designed to fix rounded shoulders, you should check out ZSZBACE's Posture Brace. This brace is specifically designed to prevent stooping, not to fix your collarbone.
For example, wearing ZSZBACE's posture improvement device can help you maintain good posture while typing on a computer in the office, sitting on a desk chair, or standing. A pediatric-sized posture corrector for children is also available. Learn more about the differences between our postural and clavicle braces.
Reasons Why People Love This Figure 8 Back Posture Brace
This Broken Clavicle Treatment Bracket and Posture Corrector has many features that make it comfortable to wear when dealing with clavicle pain. Below we detail these features to help it stand out from similar Clavicle Fixators or Broken Clavicle Arm Slings on the market .
Thick padded shoulder straps provide comfortable stability
The straps on this stand protect your body with a felt back pad where the padding and straps fuse. In addition, the straps of this figure-8 collarbone splint are covered with breathable knitted stocking material, making it extra soft and comfortable to wear during the day and while sleeping at night.
This brace also has fairly wide shoulder straps, making it a great solution for collarbone injuries. For this type of injury, the narrower version is not recommended. If the width of these straps feels uncomfortable at first, keep in mind that this width will give you the proper level of stability needed for proper healing from a collarbone injury.
Provides more mobility than arm slings
Compared to arm slings, this figure 8 design allows full mobility of your hands. Plus, this figure-of-eight brace keeps your shoulders back and stabilizes them, rather than arm slings, which usually hold only one side. You can also choose to wear this strap under or over your clothing, unlike the arm sling which must be worn over your clothing.
For more severe collarbone injuries, your doctor may specifically recommend purchasing a shoulder strap. If needed, check out our selection of fixed arm and shoulder slings.
Also, to make this pose and collarbone support accessible to everyone, this brace is latex-free and safe to use even if you have allergies.
Use after clavicle surgery
If your injury is a simple fracture, there is no need to realign your collarbone or fracture your collarbone, just fix the area with this collarbone brace and allow your bone to heal. In more severe fractures where the bone must be replaced, surgery may be required.
After surgery, this collarbone fracture brace helps keep your shoulder still so your collarbone can heal properly. Ice can also help relieve any discomfort or swelling during severe or milder rest.
