Shoulder Compression Wrap
The Triple Play shoulder wrap provides cold and intermittent compression therapy to reduce pain and swelling. This wrap fits both left and right shoulder, up to 55” around the chest. While this kit includes one gel pack to apply cold therapy, for intermittent compression use our clinical pump or at-home pump.
Here are surgeries or injuries that may require a shoulder compression wrap:
- Shoulder replacement– Often to prevent blood clots after surgery, doctors will prescribe blood-thinning medications, which can cause further complications. Utilizing cryo-compression therapy after a major joint surgery such as a shoulder replacement can help patients recover without additional medications.
- Arthroscopic stabilization or repair- This surgery aims to restore shoulder stability, preventing further dislocations. Cryotherapy combined with a compression device will help reduce swelling and reduce pain after this shoulder surgery.
- Capsulolabral reconstruction– Also known as a Bankart repair, capsulolabral reconstruction is used to treat shoulder instability. After this surgery, patients are advised to wear a sling for up to six weeks allowing the bone to heal, in addition, cold compression can be used to reduce pain and swelling.
- Clavicle fractures– Unfortunately, the best way to treat a clavicle fracture is with immobilization. Utilizing a cold therapy machine for shoulder can help stimulate healing while reducing pain during recovery.
- Rotator cuff repair– Rotator cuff repair surgery often happens after a patient has suffered from continued shoulder pain for at least six months to a full year. Learn more about this type of shoulder surgery here.
