Shoulder Rehab and Stretching Device Used by Senior League Baseball Players

Posted Sep 07 2008 7:56pm

I had the pleasure of meeting H. Robert Perez earlier this month at the American College of Sports Medicine’s annual conference. He happened by our booth as we were demonstrating the Rotater to several conference attendees. I asked Dr. Perez if he’d like to try the Rotater, but he said that he already had one and “loved” it.

Dr. Perez went on the explain that he played Men’s Senior League Baseball and felt that the Rotater would be beneficial to many of the players.

“…Part of a Comprehensive Shoulder Stretching Program”

“As a 20+ year player in The Mens Senior Baseball League and someone with a background in Sports Medicine I can attest to the benefit of using the Rotater in a comprehensive shoulder stretching program.

I use the Rotater after a general warmup which include calistenics and running 1/2 hour before game time. I then follow the recommended stretches outlined in the instructions and finish with general throwing and long toss.

The Rotater has increased my Range of Motion at the shoulder and reduced strain. Our pitchers have tried it and they like the specific stretch it provides at the shoulder girdle. Thanks for sharing the Rotater with our over 40 baseball players”
