Exercise is therapeutic, and many of our readers are interested in learning about exercise products that will increase things like their range of motion, flexibility and strength. Exercising and stretching in a healthy manner can make us feel better and make normal daily routines less painful.
How shoulder pulleys work
When it comes to upper body and shoulder range of motion, one exercise item of particular use is the shoulder pulley. We have a wide selection, but what all of our shoulder pulleys have in common is that they are pulleys that attach to the top of your door and have a rope attached. The user grabs each end of the rope, and with one hand they pull a weaker or injured hand up and down.
The benefits of shoulder pulleys
This is a good way to get movement going in that problematic arm and shoulder. This therapeutic movement will help increase strength and stretch muscles and tissue. It will also increase blood flow in the arm, which can make your arm hurt less. You should always consult with a physical therapist or healthcare professional.
Three options, three ways to rehabilitate!
So, what shoulder pulleys do we offer here at The Wright Stuff? Let's take a look!
Blue-Ranger Shoulder Pulley with Door Strap
The Blue-Ranger Shoulder Pulley with Door Strap features self-locking handles that lock onto the rope wherever you want, giving you the ability to set the handles at the perfect height.
The smooth nylon rope will not vibrate and cause discomfort while in use.
All-Pro Weighted Handle Power Pulley
The All-Pro Weighted Handle Power Pulley's special feature is its weighted handles. Each handle weighs one pound, adding to this pulleys capacity for strengthening arms and increasing range of motion. Furthermore, the extra weight of the handles increases proprioceptive input for people who have lost muscle tone.
Pull-Easy Grip-Free Shoulder Pulley with Door Bracket
Last but definitely not least, the Pull-Easy Grip-Free Shoulder Pulley with Door Bracket is designed for people who have lost grip in the affected hand and arm. Instead of having to grip a handle, simply place the wrist of the affected arm into the loop and slightly tighten. Then you will be able to lift that hand by pulling the handle on the other end of the rope with your other hand. This will help you take those important first steps to recovery if you have lost strength and grip due to a variety of causes.
