I can honestly say that a brace may prevent a dislocation if you have a slight knock or bump but if you fall on it hard or awkwardly a brace or tape won't do shot to prevent it popping out again. I know a fair bit about shoulder injuries as I dislocated my right shoulder and did a grade 3 AC joint separation on my left shoulder, I did hard rehab every day for 6 months for both injuries and I swear it is the only way to truly prevent re injuring an touch wood have not had a problem since. I have heard that if you dislocated you are 80% likely to do it again, thankfully so far I have not and I have played top level bball for 6 years since the dislocation. Bits all about rehab and strengthening your muscles and making sure the capsule is well supported by healthy tendons and ligaments, just my 2 cents
my names's Petey and i have gigantic balls
