Arm Rehab & Strengthening Exercises
Powerball is used for arm rehabilitation & strengthening for a wide range of forearm problems. Perfect for arm fracture recovery and rehabilitation from arm breaks. Powerball allows strength to be built with isometric non-impact resistance exercise which results in dramatically cutting rehabilitation / recovery times.
How Powerball aids Forearm Rehabilitation
Used on its own daily, or following our physio designed non-impact resistance programme (see strength & rehab videos on this page & videos tab), Powerball exercises the forearm flexor & extensor muscles, delivering healing nutrients and oxygen to both muscles and connecting tendons via increased blood flow, helping to prevent tearing, contraction & subsequent inflammation of the muscle and tendon tissue throughout the lower limb – relief is immediate.
Powerball utilises highly efficient isometric resistance to exercise your forearm muscles (compared to traditional isotonic free-weight training) speeding up recovery times while progressively rebuilding strength in those recovering muscles.
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). A shorter muscle tends to limit the range of joint movement (your arm starts to feel stiff if you’re sitting typing for an hour or as you’re getting out of bed in the morning..) and stretches its connecting tendon, causing inflammation and severe forearm pain as a result. Engorging the muscle with blood by simply spinning Powerball for a few minutes, several times each day however makes it supple, far more flexible and leads to rapid healing.
