5 Rehabilitation Exercise Equipment Must-Haves

It is unavoidable to get injured. Whether you're a couch potato or an elite athlete, it happens to everyone at some time. Whatever the problem, whether it's an ache in our shoulder when we try to get the remote or a strained muscle that throws our workout plan off schedule, we want it fixed and fast.

Fortunately, the physical therapy profession is there to assist us. Physical therapists use their years of scientific training and expertise to assist us in our rehabilitation process, frequently resulting in complete recovery from sickness without the need for surgery or medication.

Targeted exercises are frequently the key. An expert physical therapist can examine an injury or disability and precisely what needs to be trained, stretched, rested, or otherwise modified. The PT will then recommend exercises tailored to the condition that improve the body's natural healing processes, speed up recovery, and minimize future setbacks.

These exercises frequently necessitate simple, yet highly effective rehabilitation equipment. Even though physical therapy equipment is inexpensive, it is essential in assisting you in regaining full function.

Rehab Exercise Equipment for all Your Recovery Needs

BlueRanger™ Shoulder Pulley — Shoulder injuries might be minor or severe. They can also be quite prevalent, with causes ranging from overuse to traumatic injuries to the side effects of mastectomy and stroke. The use of a shoulder pulley, which has been time-tested for recovery from a shoulder injury, is the first of its kind with the BlueRanger™ Shoulder Pulley from RangeMaster. The Home Ranger shoulder pulley is a lightweight, portable, and very efficient tool that goes with you everywhere to assist guide and ease your shoulder range of motion exercises in all planes of movement.

FitRanger Resistance Kit — Resistance tubing is one of the most common pieces of rehabilitation equipment used by physical therapists, and for good reason. Tubing, which is inexpensive, lightweight, and highly portable, is an excellent way to focus on muscle groups. It's versatile; it can be used for any stage of recovery, from ultra-light to extra heavy resistance. Unlike conventional weights, resistance tubing allows for exercises in any plane of motion rather than being restricted by the up-and-down orientation of gravity. A length of tubing with handles is sufficient for a number of exercises, but adding an anchor strap (for attachment to a door) or exercise workstation accessories can open up a new world of rehabilitation exercise choices.

FlexAbility Stretch Strap — Stretching is also an important aspect of exercise. When you focus on increasing muscle mass, the muscles become stronger but more contracted. Excess strain on the body can cause imbalances in strength, which may have a negative influence on performance and posture. Stretching may help you avoid this problem by ensuring that you get the maximum benefit from your strength training physical therapy exercises. FlexAbility Stretch Strap is an assisted stretching gadget that aims to increase flexibility while reducing pain and discomfort.
