What to buy with Complete Medical Exercise Pulley
How to do exercises with a Complete Medical Shoulder Pulley?
- Exercise 1: In the first shoulder pulley exercise, your chair faces the door square, with the door anchor fixed over the door. The uninjured arm pulls the injured arm, gently stretching it forwards and up. Hold in the final position for 10 seconds and then lower the arm.
- Exercise 2: Once comfortable with the first exercise, turn your chair 90 degrees and perform the same exercise from the side. Gradually let your shoulder stretch and increase its range of motion.
- Exercise 3: When you feel that your range of motion has improved, you can turn the chair, so you’re facing away from the door. Using the uninjured arm, lift the injured arm up directly in front of you, holding it in the final position for 10 seconds or more.
- Exercise 4: The next step is to adjust the angle of your arm from your body to 45 degrees. Perform the same movement at this angle, stretching the arm as high as you can without too much pain. Always hold in the final position for at least 10 seconds.
- Exercise 5: Next, move your arm so that it’s at 90 degrees from your body and do the same exercise in this position.
Things to remember while using Complete Medical Overdoor Shoulder Pulley
Posture - Good posture while performing your exercises can greatly improve the results of your exercise program. Whether standing, sitting, or lying on your back (supine), try to follow these postural guidelines:
- Align your body, so your ears, shoulders, and hips fall straight.
- Keep the pelvis tucked to flatten your back by tightening the stomach and slightly bending the knees.
- Relax the shoulders so they rest away from your ears, with your shoulder blades pulled back to lift the chest naturally.
