The Stretch Ranger is a low cost, simple-to-use device that you can use at home between treatments. When it comes to upper body and shoulder range of motion, one exercise item of particular use is the shoulder pulley. Originally developed by a practising Physical Therapist in 1985, the Stretch Ranger was the first web-strap over-the-door pulley on the market. Today it is still the market leader.
When used at home, in conjunction with professional therapy, it can help to speed up the recovery process. It is also ideal for preventing and rehabilitating shoulder injuries. To use, simply grab each end of the rope, and with one hand then pull a weaker or injured hand up and down. This therapeutic movement will help increase strength and stretch muscles and tissue. Pulley exercises include shoulder flexion, shoulder abduction as well as internal and external rotation.
