Remember that one time when just after lunch a patient walked into your clinic for their 1:30pm appointment complaining about their sore and dysfunctioning shoulder? During the weekend they injured their shoulder and now the pain was getting wayyy too unbearable.
Like any good physiotherapist, you assessed the reason behind the pain and found out that the patient desperately needed a supportive brace to help heal the shoulder injury and to help keep it stable.
“Thanks so much - I’ll get on that asap! But there’s so many braces out there, do you have any recommendations?”
Ummm - that’s a very good point. There are actually so many braces available on the market that picking out just one to help heal an injury can get super confusing!
As a registered physiotherapist and clinic owner in Toronto, I treat a variety of patients (sports, wcb, mva, private) and believe in offering complete care at my own practice. Offering “complete care” includes recommending helpful advice and products that can boost your patient’s recovery.
Today I want to share my opinion on what I like/don’t like about CSC's top 10 best selling shoulder braces, as well as which type of patients are most suited for these shoulder supports so we can better help clinicians offer complete care for your practice.
