How to Stretch Your Shoulder – Increase Internal Rotation
Stretching the internal rotation of your shoulder was difficult – in the past. Before the ROTATER was available, a shoulder rehab patient was advised to perform the “towel stretch”. This works – but only if you can reach behind your back – which can be very difficult if you have a shoulder injury or are a post operative shoulder rehab patient.
In this video, you will see that with the ROTATER:
- You can stretch the internal rotation of your shoulder in a variety of positions – it is not one dimensional – unlike the “towel stretch”
- You control the amount of force exerted on your shoulder – instant feedback lets you know the ROTATER is working
- You don’t have to be able to reach behind your back to begin stretching your internal rotation
“.. It (the ROTATER) is much more effective than the old doorway and towel stretches plus patient’s seem to be more motivated to do it at home than giving them these stretches.
It does a better job at isolating than anything I have come across and when it comes to shoulder impingement, etc, having good ER/IR (external rotation / internal rotation) is huge and very well could mean the difference in having surgery or not.”
