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.

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.
