Additional tips for using your shoulder immobilizer arm sling:  

Here are some tips that can be helpful for you to apply the shoulder immobilizer. If you do not know the correct method of applying the sling it can cause delayed recovery so please make sure to discuss it with your nurse or physical therapist.  

  1. Do not wear the shoulder immobilizer sling directly on the skin. It is recommended to wear a t-shirt or a button down shirt before applying the sling.  
  2. Keep a small washcloth or towel under your armpit as you can get a rash or a fungal infection due to excess moisture in that area.  
  3. Keep a pillow behind your arm in the sitting or lying position for more comfort. This will keep your elbow from moving behind your back which can damage your surgical repair if not taken care of.
