Have anybody tried to use a so called shoulder brace ? My understanding that it is like a piece of a T-short with belts attached, and it is designed to push a shoulder in such a way as to compensate sublaxation.

Shoulder support

Sorry, I think I did not ask the question correctly. What are the ways to support shoulders when one is standing/walking ? I am aware only of a shoulder sling, but it is very incovenient to use them for both shoulders. Besides, a shoulder sling just reduces a load on a shoulder, but does not push it up and inside.

Hi ptich. Have you thought of calling a physiotherapy clinic to see if they have what you're looking for? I think I have seen what you are looking for. It looked like a shoulder holster for 2 pistols made of heavy elastic fabric. I think I saw it when I had therapy on my shoulder.
AL.

Thanks Al. There are so many folks here complaining about shoulder issues, looks like every second person, I am surprised that nobody tried something like this.
