Shoulder arthritis can range from mild niggles and aches in cold weather to serious pain and ache with every movement. Considering how much the shoulder joint is used every day, it's not at all surprising that arthritis affects up to 10% of the adult population. Resting the joint and keeping the muscles limber helps but wearing a shoulder brace for arthritis not only alleviates the pain and stiffness caused by it, but also help with the recovery of the joint.
Wearing a shoulder arthritis brace is strongly recommended to alleviate pain, swelling and stiffness that comes with arthritis, giving you more mobility to get you back into life without worrying about your shoulder.
When it comes to arthritis, there's no cure, as it's a degenerative condition that doesn't heal. Taking care of your joint with lifestyle and diet changes alongside bracing and targeted strengthening is the best way to relieve arthritic pain and put off the need for surgery as long as possible, sometimes indefinitely.
While cheaper and less effective braces can cause an issue known as reliance (where the muscles become weaker and rely on the brace), Bauerfeind have perfected the blend of stability and movement. By restricting or immobilising specific parts of the ankle that need it, and freeing up the rest, you can continue to exercise, building and maintaining strength in the joint.
Simply put, Bauerfeind have set the global standard for medical braces, compression and insoles.
