Physio Note: Joint Protection

Avoid sleeping on injured side

Avoid carrying anything over ten pounds with injured arm as doing so may well delay recovery

Sling support for injured arm may be recommended or provided at outset of your acute care treatment. Your physical therapist may, with grade two separation, choose to tape joint to provide additional support and approximate displaced joint surfaces
