Effective injury rehabilitation & prevention with Powerball

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.

+ Regain strength & muscle mass

Muscle wastage (atrophy) is an inevitable side effect from a sprained/broken hand or finger. As your hand or finger heals in a cast, the muscles surrounding the injury are not engaged and begin to waste away. Once your break or sprain 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.

+ Non-impact recovery

Even if your break or fracture has healed, your hand will still be weak once you remove your cast. Spinning Powerball generates 100% non-impact isometric resistance, which 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.

+ Reduce recovery times

Spinning Powerball allows you to strengthen as you recover, which helps your muscles and bones to heal faster. A broken hand or sprain can really only heal itself over time, however using Powerball supercharges the healing process, cutting rehabilitation times and ensuring long-lasting results. You really have to spin this incredible gyroscope to feel the difference – pick up a Powerball today and experience the benefits for yourself.

+ Effective injury prevention

Continuing to use Powerball on a regular basis even after you have fully recovered from a broken hand or sprain 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 hand or finger sprain in the future. All it takes is 5 minutes a day to benefit from Powerball’s long-lasting effects and keep yourself protected from fingertip to shoulder.

Impact injuries are the biggest cause of a broken hand 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 hand or finger sprain 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 sprained or broken hand, both 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 sprain or fractured/broken hand or finger. Your doctor may perform an x-ray to ensure that no permanent damage has been done. If you are suffering from a broken hand or finger, your doctor will most likely secure your hand with a cast to keep the bone in place as it heals.
