MedCline Shoulder Relief Solution
For those feeling the lingering effects of an old sports injury to those suffering with chronic shoulder pain at night, the MedCline LP Shoulder Relief System allows you to once again sleep comfortably on your side. The components of the Shoulder Relief System, which includes the Shoulder Relief Wedge and Therapeutic Body Pillow, work together to prop you up just high enough to take the pressure off your downside arm and shoulder. The patented arm pocket of the Shoulder Relief Wedge can be used on either your right or left side. The stuffing of the Therapeutic Body Pillow can be adjusted, so you can find what’s most comfortable for you.
Acting as your own personal mattress topper, the MedCline LP System is simply placed on top of your mattress. At 45” long, the System creates a gradual 5-8 degree angle (6” tall) and measures in at 28” wide to allow you to turn over easily throughout the night. The MedCline LP Shoulder Relief System takes up ½ of a queen-sized bed.
Customers have found the MedCline LP Shoulder Relief System to be helpful for:
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Post-surgical recovery
- Arthritis / bursitis
- Nerve impingement
- General shoulder pain
MedCline LP is available in one size, which is best suited for those 5’5-6’0. For those 5’4 and under, we recommend purchasing a small MedCline Reflux Relief System (found here) as a better option for your shoulder relief. The small Reflux Relief System has the same patented arm pocket but is shorter in length so will be more effective for you. For those over 6’0, we recommend the large MedCline Reflux Relief System (found here) as a better option for your shoulder relief. The large Reflux Relief System will provide more clearance for your shoulder, which will make it more effective for you.
Those suffering with nighttime acid reflux (GERD) or laryngopharyngeal reflux (LPR)/silent reflux are encouraged to purchase the MedCline Reflux Relief System (instead of the MedCline LP Shoulder Relief System) as a higher level of elevation (15-20 degrees) is needed to relieve nocturnal GERD symptoms.
Gradual incline. The length of MedCline LP System allows for a gradual increase in elevation so that you don’t feel as if you are sleeping at an angle. MedCline LP props you up just high enough to take the pressure off your downside shoulder and arm. The dimensions of MedCline LP are 45”x28”x6”. The full-length body pillow can be pulled between your knees for added lower back support.
Symmetrical design. The patented arm pocket at the top of MedCline Shoulder Relief Wedge is symmetrical so that you can sleep on your right or left side. The small insert pillow within the arm pocket is filled with shredded memory foam and can be adjusted to your comfort. The Therapeutic Body Pillow can be used with the long limb in front of you or behind you, depending on what you find to be more comfortable.
Flexible arm positions. The flexible design of MedCline LP allows you to position your arm however you normally would, either out straight onto the bed surface or tucked up under the body pillow.
Medical-grade materials for quality, support, and longevity. Most bed wedges are just a singular foam type cut into a triangle. The MedCline LP wedge is constructed with multiple types of medical-grade foam, strategically placed and layered for maximum support and product longevity. The top layer is memory foam for added comfort.
