Shoulder Performance & Rehab becomes Shoulder Rehab & Performance
If you’re a frequent reader of this blog, you may have noticed the name has changed – okay, really it was just rearranged. A couple of months ago, I installed a “plugin” to add some additional features to this blog. That didn’t work out as I had planned – BUT – by the time I discovered the problem, nearly all of my Page and Post titles had been altered and caused a drastic drop in our Google ranking and and our blog traffic.
Since we had fallen off the map, so to speak, we thought it would be a good time to change the name. Not a big change, but one that should help us in search rankings.

Patrick Ward had this to say in his Review of the Rotater:
The Rotater is versatile in that it allows the client to move in a variety of planes in order to obtain a stretch. It is very comfortable to use and the 6-holes easily allow you to adjust the wrist strap or thera-tubing for any size arm. Because of the design, clients can comfortably attain a stretch position and hold for extended period of time with ease.
and he closes with this final thought:
If you work with people who need help with either external or internal shoulder flexibility or strength, you may want to consider The Rotater for your clinic or gym. Or, as a supplemental piece for the clients to keep at home as part of their self-care program.

Mike Young recently wrote an article about the Rotater and Shoulder Injuries where he says:
It’s use is not super intuitive at first. I had to look at the pictures but when I did I was actually quite impressed with what you could do with it.
…I think it’s one of the few products I think could be valuable for increasing the performance and decreasing the likelihood of injury in athletes that need to do high velocity, ballistic overhead movements.
he concludes with:
Disclaimer: The Rotater was sent to me for review and testing but they did not request any type of review or endorsement in return. I only wrote this review because I thought it might be useful for some of the overhead athletes on the site.
Scott Bird is the owner of the website Straight To The Bar
Scott (and his father) recently reviewed the Rotater, here are their thoughts on the Rotater:
The Rotater is a brilliant thing.
Scott’s father tried the Rotater and says:
The results of my test of the Rotater are surprising, amazing, & in my case stimulating.
Scott’s closing remarks:
If you’ve ever experienced shoulder pain, you’ll understand just how frustrating it can be. Apart from the pain itself, it’s perhaps the fact that it prevents you from doing your normal exercise routine that’s the biggest source of aggravation.
In my case – and in my dad’s – The Rotater ended that frustration. An incredible feeling.
