Forearm Rehab & Strengthening Exercises

Powerball is used for arm strengthening & rehabilitation for a wide range of forearm problems. Perfect for forearm fracture recovery and rehabilitation from arm breaks. Powerball allows strength to be built with isometric non-impact resistance exercise cutting rehabilitation times.

How Powerball aids Forearm Rehabilitation? 

Powerball has a physio designed non-impact resistance programme (see strength & rehab videos on this page & videos tab), which performed daily, exercises the flexors & extensors, delivering healing nutrients and oxygen to the muscles and tendons via increased blood flow, helping to prevent tearing, contraction & subsequent inflammation of the muscle and tendon tissue – relief is immediate. Powerball allows you to exercise your forearms with resistance instead of traditional weight training allowing you to make steps to recovery and build strength quickly.

Arm Rehab Testimonial

Powerball has 1000’s of five-star reviews online, see what Frans Beckengret a professional tennis player and physio said about Powerballs arm rehabilitation and strengthening capabilities at the bottom of the page.

Repetitive Strain Injury…? 

Powerball is also used for all manner or forearm repetitive strain injuries (RSI’s)/ muscle strains & tears. The forearm contributes significantly in daily work and connects the elbow to the wrist via the powerful flexor and extensor muscles which give strength and mobility to your hands and fingers. Simple movements, repeated thousands of times daily (overuse) such as typing, assembly line work, writing etc, result in microscopic tearing of flexor/extensor tissue, ultimately causing surface knots and shortening in the muscles (injured muscles tend to contract). This limits the range of joint movement – stretches connecting tendons and causes inflammation and severe forearm pain.

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.
