Push med Shoulder Brace £42.04
The Push Med Shoulder Brace fixes the upper and lower arm in position during the treatment of shoulder injuries. The position of the shoulder brace can be selected in such a way as to fix the arm in a neutral position or at a slight adduction. The position can be changed easily by turning the chest band slightly. If adduction limitation is required only, the wrist fixing element can be removed.
Push med products provide effective solutions for the treatment and prevention of injuries of the locomotor apparatus. Approved by physicians and scientists.
Before washing, close the Velcro to protect the brace and other laundry.
The brace can be washed at temperatures up to 30°C, on a delicate fabrics cycle or by hand. Do not use any bleaching agents.
A gentle spin-dry cycle can be used: after this, hang the brace up to dry in the open air (not near a heating source or in a tumble drier).

An abdominal strain occurs when the rectus abdominus is torn or ruptured. The abdominal muscles allow movement, assist with breathing, and provide support to the spine. They consist of the internal and external obliques, rectus abdominus, and the transversus abdominus. The transversus abdominus muscle is triangular and flat, and the rectus abdominus is long and flat. If the abdominal muscles become weak or tight, they can cause poor posture and back pain.
There are three types of abdominal muscle strain; grade 1, grade 2 and grade 3.
A grade 1 strain occurs when a few muscle fibres are torn;
a grade 2 strain occurs when the tears to the muscle fibres are more extensive;
and a grade 3 strain occurs when there is a complete rupture of the muscle
Any sport which involves a fast movement or sudden change in direction can cause abdominal muscle strain. Gymnasts, weight lifters, rowers, throwers are particularly susceptible to abdominal strain.
