Effective treatment and prevention for CTS

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a localised Repetitive Strain injury (RSI) caused by compression of the median nerve (usually by inflammed tendons) as it passes through the Carpal Tunnel in the wrist. This may result in pain and loss of funtion in the hand or wrist, plus numbness, burning or general weakness of the palm and fingers – especially at night.

Powerball’s non-impact resistance programme is a fast, effective way to treat and prevent CTS by exercising the wrist flexors & extensors; stimulating oxygen rich blood flow into the 9 tendons running through the Carpal tunnel; increasing synovial fluid production in the tendon sheaths and enhancing overall flexibility and range of motion in the joint which greatly reduces risk of inflammation in the tendons.

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.
