Non Surgical Treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Isometric exercise means that as you are exercising there is no change in joint angle or muscle length. Isometric exercise is most effective because it is 100% non-impact which is perfect for rehabilitation. Powerballs soothing exercise reduces inflammation releasing the pressure on the carpal tendons causing the pain. Before you think about surgery make sure you try the most effective non surgical treatment of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

 

Rehab after surgery – the same isometric exercise that is so effective in the non surgical treatment of carpal tunnel will speed up your recovery times post surgery. Powerball stops muscle wastage and strengthens your wrists. Continued use of Powerball will ensure you do not have a return of repetitive strain injuries RSI’s.

 

Powerball Gyrosnon surgical treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome - exploded powerballcope

Powerball is the home of gyroscope exercisers. A Powerball has a rotor (green wheel below) which spins on its axis creating resistance against the user. This resistance is created by the rotor as you turn your wrists which is known as gyroscopic precision. The faster the rotor spins the more resistance there is against the user. This resistance is purely isometric which is ideal for rehabilitation.

 

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? 

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a localised Repetitive Strain injury (RSI) caused by compression of the median nerve (usually by inflamed tendons) as it passes through the Carpal Tunnel in the wrist. This usually results in pain and loss of function in the hand or wrist, plus numbness, burning or general weakness of the palm and fingers, especially at night. Spinning Powerball for just 2-3 minutes, several times each day provides fast, effective pain relief and a rapid decrease of inflammation in the tendons which are compressing down around the nerve.

Follow Guidelines

Extensive, easy to follow exercise guidelines to help with your rehab and strengthening.

 
Week 1:
An initial workout of 3 x 30 seconds spin sessions with a 1 minute break between each, repeated on alternate days. Use your first session to establish the RPM at which you are challenged but can still maintain a solid grip on the ball.
 
Week 2: 3 x 30 second spin sessions with a 1 minute break between each, repeated daily.
 
Week 3:3 x 60 second spin sessions with a 1 minute break between each, repeated on alternate days
 
Week 4: 3 x 60 second spin sessions with a 1 minute break between each, repeated daily.
 
Remember

Initial spin speed is determined by your personal strength and fitness level as well as whether you’re using the ball to rehabilitate a pre-existing injury or to help build muscle strength - always begin conservatively until you fully establish the spin speed at which your muscles are being challenged yet can still maintain a solid grip on the ball.

Progress is achieved by increasing duration and spin speed in conjunction with a regular exercise schedule. Should you experience any discomfort while exercising with Powerball® or Powerspin®, speak to your doctor or other qualified healthcare practitioner to get the best advice and support.
