Keeping your shoulder stable and pain-free might not seem like a priority for people playing a game where the arms are barely used, but football players are at risk of shoulder dislocation and injury, especially when they're playing at a competitive level. Wearing a football shoulder brace is great for protecting the joint from dislocation while still allowing you to move about and keep active.
At Bauerfeind, we have a wide selection of products that ensure when you're after a shoulder support for football, you've got the best there is.
Most of our Performance line is designed for wear during active movement rather than all day, while our main range (products ending in "Train" or "Loc") are better suited for injury management and all day wear, whether it's sports, exercise, work or just chores around the house.
If you're unsure if the support you're looking at is ideal for all day wear, just give us a call on 1300 668 466.
These supports are designed to allow for regular range of movement while stabilising the joint and preventing injury. This means you can confidently move in pivots, sudden changes of direction, jumps and landing as well as quick steps and positioning.
Bauerfeind's range of supports are made from an ultra-breathable cotton/elastic weave that's perfect for active use of any level. Clinically shown to vent heat more effectively than any other support, it's perfect for air-flow, temperature regulation and comfort.
Virtually all of our products can be machine washed on a cold gentle cycle and air dried out of direct sunlight. Putting them on and taking them off carefully is recommended, and for specific product care, refer to the product manual or contact our friendly staff.
All supports and insoles come with a 12 month warranty, and compression stockings with a 3 month warranty for any manufacturers faults. At any point if you've got issues with the product or aren't sure if something is wrong, just contact our helpful staff.
Bauerfeind have an incredibly extensive sizing system for our products based off of hundreds of thousands of patient measurements. The perfect anatomic fit system we use means that the supports are designed to fit your body, not the other way around. (We also offer custom options for a range of our products for those rare few who still can't fit into our sizing range).
While any kind of brace or support will have an affect on your physical movement, it's in a positive sense. More stability in the joints and muscles, increased power with each movement and better balance mean that you'll move more effectively. It may take a little bit of adjustment with some supports that have rigid components, but long-term there should only be an improvement in your form.
