What is luxation?
The shoulder joint is a so-called balland-socket joint and one of the most mobile in the whole body. But it is nevertheless often cricked or dislocated.Doctors refer to this as luxation. An operation is not usually needed, but the shoulder’s range of movement has to be
limited with this special support.
The effect of the support
The slightly compressive knitted fabric alleviates swellings and dispels muscle tensions. The movement is greatly restricted by the upper (white) strap, thus resting the injured shoulder and relieving pain. The shoulder can regenerate.
How often and when should I wear the support?
It is suitable for continuous use over a number of weeks. But during longer periods of rest (e.g. when sleeping) the support should be removed.
Velcro fasteners should be closed for washing. We recommend using a laundry bag. Soap residues, lotions and ointments can cause skin irritation and material wear.
