My son was home from college over break & had some shoulder pain from working out before he came home. I ordered this to see if it would help. He would wear it for about 4-5 hrs. Shoulder felt great while he was wearing it & lasted from several hours afterwards to overnight before it started aching again. It kept his shoulder stable but also allowed him movement.
My husband has to wait 3 more weeks for shoulder replacement surgery and is in agony. I bought this as a last ditch effort to help him during the wait since pain pills, ice, heat nor anything else he tried gave him any pain relief. He hasn’t slept in weeks. Omg! He is not totally pain free but is so much better with this shoulder brace. Both of us are very grateful. Hope it helps him get through until his surgery.
