A shoulder brace and / or shoulder bandage is indicated for shoulder complaints where the shoulder movement must be limited.
In shoulder tendon disorders (PHS, tendonitis, tendonosis, tendinopathy), a shoulder brace can be used to inhibit those movements where the tendons need to be less loaded.
A shoulder brace prevents shoulder luxation.
Even with shoulder instability, a shoulder brace can help extremely well to prevent the shoulder head from slipping too much.
Another common complaint is the shoulder impignment syndrome. The tendons are clamped by sliding the shoulder head upwards too much. This excessive sliding of the shoulder head can also be limited by a shoulder bandage.
