Although I’ve been deeply involved with hockey and baseball for over 40-years, I’d never worried much about a shoulder injury until one hit very close to home several years ago. That’s when my grandson experienced a pretty severe injury that almost ruined his senior year of high school hockey.
Now, I wasn’t aware of the Rotater back then (I wish I had been), but I’ve wondered lately if working with that device might have prevented my young buddy’s injury, or at least lessened its severity. I’m thinking that it surely would have.
And, yes, I just said the Rotater might have even helped prevent that awful injury.
To be honest, rehabbing an injury is not my area of expertise, so I’ll leave that to the specialists. But, a lot of great advice comes with your Rotater, and there are some awesomely produced videos you can watch right now over on that website.
Hinting at the idea of injury prevention earlier, I’ve already planned a Rotater workout for my Team NEHI players beginning this spring with our workouts in The MOTION Lab.
Ah, there’s still one other benefit I’m looking forward to for the sake of my players. For, as a hockey player — or almost any athlete — increased strength and range of motion are going to greatly enhance that athlete’s individual skills. And, when it comes to hockey, I’m talking about trickier, more dangerous wide dribbling skills (the mark of a great puckhandler)!
So, please visit the Rotater site by clicking on the photo below (you’ll be glad you did). And take a browse through those videos to see how it works…
