The AlignMed S3 Spine and Scapula Stabilizing Brace is designed for postural dysfunctions such as protracted scapulae (rounded shoulders) and forward head position often associated with the overhand throwing athlete. It is ideal for athletes with shoulder dysfunction and upper extremity overuse syndrome. Athletes can wear the Spine and Scapula Stabilizing Brace after throwing to rest their arm and prevent the feeling of "hanging" often complained about.
An excellent device to educate the body and mind of the correct positional sense, the brace places the scapula in the ideal position for shoulder function by providing proprioceptive and kinesthetic cues by applying pressure on the inferomedial corner of the bone and on the pec major musculotendinous junction.
Additionally, the Spine and Scapula Stablizing Brace is designed to address:
- Scapular dyskinesis - both proximally and distally based
- Long thoracic mononeuropathy
- Lower trapezius and/or serratus anterior weakness
- Subacromial impingement syndrome
- Anterior instability
- Multidirectional instability
- Internal impingement
- Bicep tendonitis
- As an orthosis for upper body weakness
