I played baseball at a very progressive high school. The athletic department was well-funded and we had all sorts of therapeutic machines and devices along with a full compliment of trainers and student trainers.
I had transferred to this high school during my senior year simply to play baseball at a well known school and enhance my chances of receiving scholarship offers. Prior to this time, I had no idea that there were high schools that took their athletic programs so seriously ( this was in the late 70’s ). The school that I had come from didn’t have any “certified” athletic trainers, much less ones to rub down each pitcher’s arm before and after practice. I was in heaven.
Lack of feedback is a problem
One of the few problems of having someone else to stretch your shoulder is the lack of instant feedback. The trainer is limited because he/she cannot “feel” what the athlete is feeling and must be very aware of the person that he/she is stretching in order to gage the degree and effectiveness of the stretch. This is where having the Rotater helps both the athlete and the athletic trainer.
Strict form + good hands = effective stretch
Using the Rotater allows you to control the intensity of the stretch while maintaining strict and correct form. This way, you know when you are “doing some good”, while at the same time, you have full confidence that you are in good hands - your own.
The Rotater gives you with the ability to increase your range of motion by stretching your shoulder internally and externally. It is simply the best tool for the job.
