Preventing Shoulder Impact Injuries
A proper warm up routine is very important to help prevent sports related shoulder injuries. It is also essential to wear shoulder supports when playing high impact sports. For example,if you are playing rugby, football, or hockey then you should always wear shoulder supports to protect your shoulders against impact injuries.
Often impact injuries to the shoulder affect the acromioclavicular joint.
Impact injuries can also occur when you fall off a bicycle or horse and so if you are a serious cyclist or rider then you may want to consider using shoulder supports when you do this as well.
