shoulders back brace?

I was wondering weather or not any of you had used the shoulders back brace before, paticularly those with a shoulder injury. I hurt my shoulder in a car accident last fall, and am sore for days after riding in my shoulder. :-(

Anyway, I am wondering what it would do as far as my shoulder goes- make the pain worse, better, etc. Obviously injuries vary but any feedback would help. I can't seem to find anything about using this with an injury.

See if someone can kinesio tape your shoulder for you, then ride and see if it offers enough muscle and tissue support. There might be a physio, massage therapist or athletic trainer who could do it. It isn't the same as a shoulder brace, as it offers the muscles kinesthetic and proprioceptive input, improving healing time. Google it.
