Thuasne Townsend Shoulder Sling

Playing contact sports like football and hockey can cause shoulder instability and a myriad of other issues. Upper extremity injuries are painful enough, but when you don't have the correct support to immobilise and protect the area this can lead to further pain and re-injury. The Thuasne Townsend Shoulder Sling immobilises and protects your shoulder and arm so the injury heals properly.

Who Can Make Gains with the Townsend Sling?

Upper extremity injuries are caused by a number of different issues, including the excessive overhead motions performed in the following sports:

  • Bowling in cricket
  • Pitching in baseball
  • Swimming
  • Tennis
  • Weightlifting

By immobilising the area, the Thuasne Townsend Sling helps support your shoulder while it heals so you can recover properly. However, not only is it important to immobilise your arm and shoulder, but it's also integral that you perform light exercises when your physician says you're ready. An exercise ball is also included to help strengthen your arm to its original strength so you can fully recover from the injury.
