Computer RSI and Carpal Tunnel - Prevent & Treat
Regular use of a computer significantly increases risk of repetitive strain injury (RSI) or computer related Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
RSI from Computer use…..
Fine, precise hand & finger movements necessary to operate mouse and keyboard, repeated thousands of times daily (overuse), causes strain and microscopic tearing of the forearm muscles powering the wrist, hands & fingers. Injured muscles tend to contract, causing decreased range of motion and tendon inflammation at either the elbow or wrist joints (or very often both). Inflamed tendons may additionally compress the median nerve running through the Carpal Tunnel in the wrist, bringing severe hand pain and numbness (CTS).
How Powerball cures RSI from Computer use
Using Powerball daily will guard against/alleviate the symptoms associated with RSI from computer use. Powerball may be used on its own or with our physio designed non-impact resistance programme (see videos below) which, when performed daily, efficiently stretches out and exercises the forearm flexors/extensors, increasing strength/flexibility in these muscles and joints through the non-impact resistance it generates as it spins; range of motion and blood flow increase, bringing collagen healing oxygen and nutrients to help significantly reduce inflammation.
