SPORT/RECREATION: Use The Rotater to stretch and warm up before Golf – Kettlebell – Cricket – Tennis – Wall/Rock Climbing – Canoeing – Baseball – Softball – Weight Lifting – BJJ, Thai Boxing, Boxing, MMA, powerlifter or strong man/woman, gardening, skiing or boarding – well, you get the idea – if you use your shoulders to do it The Rotater can help improve your sports preparation and warm down.
WORK: Use The Rotater to offset the monotonous postures you probably experience during a 35-55 hour per week office job, these postures invariably challenge healthy positioning of head, neck, shoulder and shoulder girdle. Likewise if overhead working, or long periods of shoulder use are a significant part of your week – tree surgeon, gardener, builder, road or rail workers, painter and decorator, rope access worker etc The Rotater can help you deal with niggling shoulder problems and prevent them getting more serious.
The importance of having the full range of motion of your shoulder cannot be overstated. If you are a grandmother trying to hold her grandchild, a builder constantly reaching overhead or an elite athlete trying to compete with the world’s best, you need, require and expect maximum shoulder performance.
“My own experience with The Rotater” by osteopath and Shouldercentric’s founder Andrew Bellamy:
“During the frustrating rehab from a fracture/dislocation of my shoulder after falling off my mountain bike, I came across The Rotater. I had already had successful surgery and great physiotherapy, (and I have been an Osteopath for over 20 years), but it was all going too slowly for me.
A Rotater arrived in the UK in quick time and immediately made a positive difference. If for no other reason, it put control of my problem in my hands. As a patient, I like that control – as an Osteopath, I can appreciate the mechanical and physiological advantages of the way The Rotater keeps the axis of shoulder rotation in line with the upper arm. This prevents ‘patient cheating’ by tilting the body or dropping the arm when doing shoulder exercises, a common problem for physical therapists to overcome everywhere.
It’s now 12 weeks since my surgery; I’ve been back at work full-time for the last 8 weeks, plus I’m back to the gym, off-road biking, (no falls yet), and SCUBA diving. I have a great Physio, but the answer so often is to take good advice and then motivate yourself – The Rotater gives you that choice.
Frankly, I don’t usually do testimonials, but I will be recommending this device to my patients as well as using it as a tool in my clinic.”
