Hockey Shoulder Support Brace, Straps & Bandage | 360 Relief

Hockey Shoulder Support

Hockey is a high-contact sport that requires a lot of physical exertion and movement, making the risk of injury increase while playing the game. One area commonly injured in hockey is the shoulder. A direct hit to the front or top region of the shoulder, or trauma from a fall are the two most common causes of shoulder injury from hockey. You may feel severe pain, swelling, discomfort or weakness around the affected shoulder if you experience an injury.

Adjustable Arm/Shoulder Sling Support for Fractured Arms Elbows Wrists and Pain Relief



360 Relief shoulder sling is designed to keep your arm suspended with or without a cast. Wearing a sling keeps your arm against your body and prevents you from moving your arm too much as you heal after injury.

In extreme situations, you may not even be able to move or rotate your arm, and lifting heavy objects may also become difficult. If these symptoms persist for more than a week, or if you lose arm and shoulder function, you should consult your GP immediately, and they will ask about the injury history, perform a physical exam, and take some imaging tests, such as X-rays, to see if there's a fracture.

Additional scans such as an MRI or ultrasound may also be performed, as they can identify tears, as well as the size and severity of them.

Athletes and people whose jobs require frequent use of the shoulder should rest often or take frequent breaks whilst working or playing. This can aid with stiffness and pain relief. Shoulder strengthening exercises may also be beneficial. Contact your physical therapist for stretches and strengthening exercises to improve the function of your shoulder.

Your doctor or GP may also recommend you wear a shoulder support or brace. These supports provide you with extra support and prevent you from severe harm and damage. They also provide compression, which can help boost blood circulation and make the healing process quicker and more effective.

360 Relief provides shoulder braces and supports that keep your shoulders protected and prevent them from re-injury in the future. They’re made with high-quality material and help relieve pain by limiting shoulder motion and minimising the chance of injury. They also come in a range of sizes and colours, tailored to suit your needs and preferences.

How Does A Shoulder Support Work?

Shoulder support helps compress the shoulder joints to reduce inflammation and pain. They also help relieve shoulder instability, allowing injuries to heal more quickly.

How Do Shoulder Braces Help In Hockey?

Shoulder braces are not recommended to be worn while playing hockey because your muscles have to work harder to resist against the braces’ straps. People who want to recover quickly from previous shoulder injuries are recommended shoulder braces. They can also lessen the discomfort that results from shoulder pain.

What Are Common Shoulder Injuries In Hockey?

Hockey players may experience the following shoulder injuries:

  • Shoulder Dislocation
  • Shoulder Separation
  • Shoulder Fracture
  • Shoulder Impingement
How Should I Wear a Shoulder Brace?

A shoulder brace should not be tight enough to cause numbness, tingling, or swelling on your arm. However, it should not be loose enough to increase strain or stress either. A brace should allow your elbow to bend at 90 degrees and support your arm firmly against your body without lifting.

How To Prevent Shoulder Injury In Hockey?

The following preventive measures allow a player to play hockey safely:

  • Play fairly and avoid cheap shots
  • Avoid your shoulder getting down too low while going into the boards
  • Wear proper equipment
  • Stabilize your muscles to stay strong
