Arm Slings, Shoulder Immobilizers

Arm or shoulder slings can be used for different types of conditions of the shoulder, arm, elbow or wrist in adults and pediatrics. These conditions can be caused from a strain, surgery, dislocation, fracture or injury.

 A patient’s arm is being examined if an arm sling is helpful.

A sling is a device used to support and keep still (immobilize) an injured part of the body. Slings can be used for many different injuries. They are most often used when you have a broken (fractured) or dislocated arm or shoulder.

With respect to arm sling, the key difference from shoulder immobilizers is that shoulder immobilizers have an extra strap that runs from the elbow around the back to the wrist, almost like a belt. It is basically a soft foam support which consists of four parts: the chestband, arm strap, wrist strap and shoulder strap. The purpose of the shoulder immobilizer is to prevent the shoulder joint from moving. Wearing it keeps your shoulder in the correct position for healing. This stabilizes the shoulder and prevents the arm from dropping away from the body when you lean or bend over. This also stops the arm from “jumping” as you walk or are bumped unexpectedly in public.
