Sprains, Breaks and Fractures Made Simple with Powerball

Intro
Intro

Our hands and fingers are made up of a collection of small bones – 27 bones to be exact, including those in the wrist. Since our hands and fingers are usually at the forefront of every activity we do, they are more susceptible to injury than most other parts of the body. That is why it’s important that we keep our hands and fingers healthy and in shape – and with Powerball, this couldn’t be easier.

Powerball’s isometric exercise is uniquely adept at strengthening and preventing injury in the hands and fingers. Simply spin this unique handheld gyroscope for a couple of minutes each day to rehabilitate a wide range of injuries, including sprains, fractures and a broken finger or hand.

How does Powerball rehabilitate injury?

Powerball generates resistance as you spin it. The faster you spin Powerball, the more resistance created. Spinning Powerball at slow speeds is enough to greatly increase circulation and stimulate the flow of oxygen-rich nutrients to damaged muscle or bone in the hand and finger. Here, these nutrients act fast to relieve pain and repair any damage – gently and effectively rehabilitating your broken finger or hand fracture.

Strengthen with Non-Impact Resistance

Even if your broken finger or hand has healed, the limb will still be weak once you remove your cast. For this reason, it is very important to take steps to strengthen the limb and regain lost power after injury.

Exercise with Powerball fully engages the muscles along the entire kinetic chain of the arm, strengthening from fingertip to shoulder. Unlike concentric and eccentric exercises (e.g. weight lifting, pushing your hand against a wall, etc.) exercise with Powerball is fully isometric. Isometric exercise is 100% non-impact meaning it places absolutely zero strain on sore or weak ligaments or bones. With this in mind, you need never worry about over-exerting yourself or worsening your injury when you exercise with Powerball.

Combat Muscle Atrophy

Muscle wastage (atrophy) is an inevitable side effect from a sprained/fractured/broken finger or hand. As your hand or finger heals in a cast, the muscles surrounding the injury are not engaged and begin to waste away. Once your fractured finger or break has healed, it is important that you start regaining muscle mass by practicing regular strength training. Spinning Powerball for just 3 minutes a day is enough to effectively build muscle from fingertip to shoulder and combat the effects of atrophy.

Prevent Future Hand and Finger Injuries

Continuing to use Powerball on a regular basis even after you have fully recovered from a broken finger or hand fracture, is a great way to maintain muscle mass and joint health. Its compact size makes it easy to spin Powerball on the go, in the car or at the office. Regular strengthening sessions with Powerball ensure your hands and fingers remain healthy and strong, greatly reducing the risk of sustaining another broken/fractured/sprained hand or finger in the future. All it takes is 3 minutes a day to benefit from Powerball’s long-lasting effects and keep yourself protected from fingertip to shoulder.

Causes

Impact injuries are the biggest cause of a broken finger or hand fracture. Fractures and breaks mean the same thing and may occur when a severe force impacts the bone, causing it to split or break. A sprained hand or finger occurs when the ligaments that connect the bones become stretched or torn. A sprain is usually the result of a person falling directly onto their outstretched hand. Whether you’re suffering from a sprain, break or fracture, all injuries are quite serious and can take months to rehabilitate. You should always seek medical attention if you think you may be suffering from a broken/fractured finger or hand. Your doctor may perform an x-ray to ensure that no permanent damage has been done. If you are suffering from one of these injuries, your doctor will most likely secure your hand with a cast to keep the bone in place as it heals.

No matter what your injury, rehabilitation is made simple with Powerball. Check out our online store today to see the range of models available and find the perfect Powerball for you.

    WEAK WRIST AFTER A BREAK?
    PROBLEM SOLVED.

    I am a cycling instructor and travel everywhere by bicycle, so when I broke my wrist in a fall from my bike, I was devastated. Thankfully, A&E were able to manipulate my bones back into position without recourse to pins or plates.

    A friend recommended Powerball® and I started with VERY gentle exercise for a couple of minutes, building up strength gradually. The physiotherapy I was given by the NHS was good but basic and my therapist was delighted with the progress I made as a result of Powerball®. My wrist is now back to almost full strength but I still use my Powerball®. I am amazed that something so simple can go from gentle exercise to really powerful exercise as the muscles and tendons start to regain their strength.

    AFTER SURGERY REHABILITATION. NO PROBLEM.

    In March of 2013 I suffered a complete tear of my right bicep at the forearm, in April of 2013 it was surgically repaired by placement of a “bicep button”.  As a Chief at a major Sheriff’s Office in Tennessee and a right handed law enforcement officer I was immediately worried about rehabilitation and all the talk of nerve numbness.  I was given putty to mold with my hand as my first rehab, needless to say I was scared and skeptical therefore I was searching for real therapy.  I located the “Powerball” on-line and while still in a mechanical brace I began my powerball rehab.  The gyroscope action was immediate therapy felt in my forearm almost like a nerve wake up.

    I then contacted your company for a heavier product and within two weeks had moved in my opinion to advanced movement.  In the first month my surgeon even asked what I had been doing and I replied my “powerball”! I continued to use my Powerball through my 5 weeks of mechanical brace and at 8 weeks post-surgery I qualified and returned to full duty.  There is no doubt in my mind the powerball stimulated my recovery and I still sit at night and let “it” work my arm!  As a bonus I played my first 18 holes of golf this week and had no side effects….Thanks for taking the time to answer those first early emails and helping me return to service!

    ULNAR / RADIUS BROKEN IN HALF?
    PROBLEM SOLVED.

    I was playing baseball for my college team in Jersey when my arm was literally broken in half. I was escorted to the hospital and doctors patched me up, advising I would have to undergo therapy. In therapy there were the usual massages and exercises, but there was also one psychical therapist who had a slightly different approach. She handed me a green Powerball® and instructed on how to use it.

    There were 3 other patients in therapy with similar injuries to mine that day and I’d say I probably healed 50% quicker. That green Powerball® literally gave me my arm back, one of the greatest inventions I’ve ever invested in. Thank you.
