Preventing driver pain and related RSI injuries

Repetitive Strain Injuries from Driving

Long sessions spent behind the wheel, driving for hours each day, presents several challenges to wrists, arms & shoulders. Lack of regular arm motion; repeated overuse of one set of muscles; wrists compressed or bent at un-natural angles for lengthy periods; vibration – all combine to stress & fatigue muscles, eventually inflamming connecting tendons in the elbow and wrist joints, causing stiffness, reduced range of motion, numbness and pain.

How Powerball helps drivers

Using your Powerball daily gives relief from pain caused by ‘Trucker’s shoulder’ and all types of repetitive strain injuries from finger tip to shoulder. Powerball also has physio designed non-impact resistance programmes, that performed daily, stimulates blood flow from shoulder to finger tips, helping loosen out tight muscle fascia, lubricate tendon sheaths and significantly strengthen both the forearm flexor & extensor muscles. Suppleness and flexibility is restored, offering greater range of motion in the joints and minimising risk of inflammation in the tendons – lasting relief is immediate.

Powerball has 1000’s of five-star online reviews and a perfect exercise aid for drivers and truckers that can fit in the palm of your hand relieving driving related pains on the road.

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.
