Has anybody used a shoulder compress after playing?
I'm curious whether or not anybody has used something like this:
If so, what were your experiences? Do you have a model you prefer? I ice my shoulder after hitting, but I'm trying to add the 'C' in 'RICE'.
The anatomy, location, and the flexibility of the shoulder joint makes it a very tough spot to compress.
I have had two shoulder surgeries and have made successful recovery on both counts. I did rock a compression sleeve thingy working my way back from surgery/rehab. And honestly, it did next to nothing. I especially hated the wrap-around strap and how it irritate my off-armpit.
Icing works well enough for me. Nothing fancy, slip an ice-pack underneath a jacket or sweater after playing. And that's just to keep the ice-pack down.
$5-8 ice-pack is good enough.
Thanks for the feedback man. I too use the ice packs under the shirt approach. I think I might try a simple re-useable ace bandage to put a bit more pressure on it, provided your experience is typical.
Ice underneath a sweater/jacket is good enough for me.
