Reducing pain and rehabilitating Shoulder Bursitis

A bursa is a tiny fluid-filled sac that lubricates the joint and reduces friction, rubbing and irritation between bone, muscle & tendons during daily body movement. Shoulder Bursitis refers to painful inflammation or swelling of the subacromial bursa located around the shoulder joint brought on by repetitive movement, minor impact or from a sudden, more serious injury.

Following either Powerball’s or Powerspin’s non-impact resistance programme daily is an ideal way to improve blood circulation into the rotator cuff, reduce inflammation and help stabilise the shoulder joint by strengthening the surrounding muscles and tendons. Both products are also a perfect way to warm-up and lubricate the bursa region prior to any sporting activity, helping prevent possible inflammation and injury as a result.

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.
