The shoulder is the most mobile joint in the human body. The cost of such versatility is an increased risk of injury. It is important that family physicians understand the anatomy of the shoulder, mechanisms of injury, typical physical and radiologic findings, approach to management of injuries, and indications for referral. Clavicle fractures are among the most common acute shoulder injuries, and more than 80 percent of them can be managed conservatively. Humeral head fractures are less common and usually occur in elderly persons; 85 percent of them can be managed nonoperatively. Common acute soft tissue injuries include shoulder dislocations, rotator cuff tears, and acromioclavicular sprains.
The shoulder sling works by immobilising the arm and shoulder by raising the arm and restricting its movement. The arm sits within a material based sling attached to a strap which loops round the patient’s neck to help elevate the arm. The strap can be adjusted manually depending on the patient’s height and arm length, but a professional will always set this before you leave the hospital to ensure that it is fitted accurately.
The Shoulder Sling helps support your arm after injury or surgery on the arm, shoulder or collarbone. Some people only need it for a short period of time, while others will wear a sling for many weeks. Regardless of how you ended up with it, wearing a shoulder sling can be a challenge
