    I dislocated my shoulder a few times in the past few weeks. I'm looking into surgery but I wanted to get a brace in the meantime to be safe. Can anyone give me some ideas on what one is good for me and my situation? Thanks.

    you should really get a brace from a doctor
    if not a few rehab/medical supply websites should be able to sell you one

    The doc is wary of bracing, he wants me to keep it strapped to my chest - but I can feel it moving when I sleep so I want to brace it while I sleep. I'm going to a supply store in the morning but I wanted some idea of what to look for.

    I'm going with this one:

    I called all over town looking for it, only to call them directly and find out they're based in Compton, 10 mins from my work.
