My friend Randy and I both recently had joint surgery (me on my knee, him on his shoulder), and we’ve been talking often about physical therapy. For shoulder patients, a couple of handles on a rope moving around a pulley over the patient’s head is used for stretching the joint, and is recommended for use more often than would be convenient to attend the treatment center, so Randy made his own, and in true Instructables fashion, shows you how.

My grandfather made exactly the same after his shoulder surgery, only he used an old skipping rope that belonged to my sister and me. A skipping rope has handles, that makes holding it easier.
Now, at 88 years old and a few years after his surgery, he still uses it everyday to stay in shape!
