I have medial epicondylitis in my arm, work in nursery so walking round trying to protect my arm so have sore neck. Has a strap on, would a sling help?

Short term use: A sling may help in the short term but I would avoid prolonged use, which could eventually lead to weakness. Try NSAIDs (i.e. ibuprofen, Aleve) and topical treatments such as aspercreme, capsaicin cream. Work on stretches as well: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/398639004490224734/ ...Read more

I have a sling on because I broke my clavicle But it makes my ear go numb. This happened before when I was wearing a sax neck strap. is it a problem?

Too tight: It sounds like your strap does not fit properly. Padding under it can help. Talk to the person who supplied it about proper fit. If that does not help, talk to the doc who is treating you about it. The damage from a poor fit, if the sling is in place to long can be permanent. So get this problem addressed. Loosen it a little till then, till numbness resolves. ...Read more
