Preventing Arts & Crafts based RSI

Why RSI’s from Arts & Crafts?

RSI (repetitive strain injury) is the curse of knitters, sculptors, painters, artists and gardeners throughout the world. It can usually be traced to surface knots (myofascial trigger points) and micro tears on the forearm flexor/extensor muscles as a result of awkward limb posture, overloading or bending of the wrist and/or overuse of the hands & fingers. The injured muscles contract over time and stretch the connecting tendons, resulting in localised pain, inflammation, stiffness, tingling or numbness in the elbows, wrists or fingers.

How Powerball cures RSI’s 

Using your Powerball daily aides and prevents RSI like no other product on the planet. We also have a physio designed non-impact resistance programme for rehabilitation and pain prevention. When performed daily it efficiently stretches out and exercises the forearm flexors/extensors, increasing strength and flexibility in the muscles, joints & fascia through non-impact resistance; Powerball also warms up the limbs to enhance range of motion, helping significantly reduce inflammation via increased blood flow.

Customers have been using Powerball to treat RSI for decades and we have received thousands of online 5 star reviews.  See what some of our customers had to say about Powerball at the bottom of the page.

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.
