Can I drive with my arm in a sling?

Do I have to wear my sling to bed?
It is important you wear your sling in bed for the recommended period, unless you are instructed otherwise. We recommend you sleep on your back or unaffected side. When lying on your back we suggest you use a pillow underneath your injured arm for support.
What is the fastest way to heal a broken shoulder?
Physical therapy may also help a fracture heal more quickly than immobilization alone. Even small movements in the hands increase blood flow throughout the arm, which brings more oxygen and nutrients to injured parts of the bone and helps it to heal more quickly.
Is a sling good for shoulder injury?
Proper usage improves healing and recovery time After an injury to your shoulder, elbow, or wrist, you may be required to wear a sling on your arm to help protect it while healing. Wearing a sling keeps your arm against your body and prevents you from moving your arm too much as you heal after an injury.
