Q&A for McDavid Lightweight Shoulder Support #463
- From Punky
- Q: Is this support water proof for swimming sports?
- A: Hi Punky,
The product is not intended to be waterproof and water will get up underneath the brace against your body.
- From Jason
- Q: Is this brace machine-washable? hand-wash only? or is dry-cleaning necessary?
- A: Hi Jason,
For best results the brace should be hand washed with Woolite and allowed to air dry.
- From jimmy
- Q: Will this work on right or left arm?
- A: Hi Jimmy,
This brace can be used on both the right or left shoulder for all day support.
- From Nabil
- Q: Can I wear this while playing basketball or lifting or is this just when I'm not doing any physical activity? Does it hinder shoulder movement for those activities?
- A: Hi Nabil,
The McDavid Lightweight Shoulder Support can be used for all types or sports, as well as, for common everyday use. The straps can be adjusted as needed for the right degree of support and compression for pain relief without affecting shoulder movement. The support allows full overhead shoulder motion and can be worn underneath or over the top of clothing.
Thanks for contacting DME-Direct customer support.
- From Lauren
- Q: I have an AC joint separation that I have been having to tape to be able to play soccer and lacrosse comfortably. Will this brace work as well as taping my shoulder?
- A: Hi Lauren,
Thanks for the question. The McDavid Lightweight Shoulder Brace will provide warmth, mild compression and adjustable support for mild to moderate shoulder injuries including mild shoulder separations. It does not include a donut though for added compression over an AC joint, which can provide added benefit for Grade III/IV AC joint injuries. If you have a Grade I/II injury, then this brace may be adequate and provide the same benefits as taping.
Thank you for contacting DME-Direct.
