What are Arm Slings used for?

Quick Recovery

An arm or shoulder sling is prescribed post-surgery to speed up the healing process as the injured part can get irritated by excessive movement.

Minimizing Pain

A splint, brace or cast is first applied to the injured arm before using an arm sling. Arm slings also helps in preventing pain due to movement. Your doctor will prescribe the appropriate style of arm sling that suits your particular medical condition.

Stroke

After a stroke, the chances of paralysis hike up, therefore shoulder slings are recommended to avoid any risk of paralysis to your arm.

What to consider while wearing an Arm Sling?

Putting on an arm sling is no big deal, but easier said than done, there are certain things one must take a note of while wearing an arm sling.

Angle

Wrong angles can perturb your already injured arm. To avoid wearing an arm sling either too high or low, make sure your arm sling is placed at correct angle. A properly fitted sling should keep the arm close to the body bent at a 90 degree angle.

Removal

Although sling for shoulders are not permanent and it can be removed to do daily living chores like bathing, however you should refrain from removing it in a haste as it may cause severe permanent damage to your limb. Always go for the expert's advice before removing the shoulder sling.

Too Loose or Tight Straps

Avoid keeping the straps too tight as it can hamper proper blood circulation of your limbs. Similarly, make sure the straps are not too loose because then the shoulder sling will not support your limb properly.

Forced Movement

While inside the arm sling, your arm will be completely restricted and you may become dependent on your other hand. In such a case, forcing your injured limb can cause trouble thus do not put too much stress on it.
