Protect your Shoulder from Impact Injuries

If you play impact sports, you are at a higher risk of sustaining severe injury to the shoulder. Such injury includes Shoulder dislocation, acromioclavicular joint separation or dislocation, and rotator cuff tearing.

Wearing shoulder supports and sports protection can help cushion the blow from impact injuries like a rugby tackle. Of course if the impact is high enough, damage may still be sustained. But you might just help reduce the impact.

It is best to maintain as much shoulder strength as possible as this helps to stabilise the shoulder joint and protect against dislocation.
