Arm Slings

Arm slings are aids that are used to immobilize and support an injured hand. Different types of arm slings are available for different types of injuries. These may include fracture, strain, sprain or dislocation due to an accidental encounter. Arm slings are simple and efficient aids made up of flexible or sturdy materials. These slings contain a cavity that holds the forearm along with a strap that secures the sling to the body. The straps usually rest on the shoulder opposite to the injury for a better hold.

What to Expect While The Arm Sling is On?

A properly fitted sling should keep the arm close to the body bent at a 90 degree angle. 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. 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. While inside the arm sling your arm will be totally restricted and you may become dependent on the other arm only. Arm slings are not permanent and can be removed to accomplish daily tasks like bathing or dressing. It may also be removed in order to perform the physical therapy that is directed by your doctor or physiotherapist in order to regain motion in the injured hand.
