Effective Relief with Powerball Exercises for Osteoarthritis

Intro
Intro

Wrist osteoarthritis is a painful inflammation of the joint(s) following erosion and breakdown of articular cartilage – the ‘shock absorber’ – on the ends of the bones. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis and is also known as degenerative arthritis or arthrosis and is a form of wear and tear on the joints that usually occurs from injuries, age or over-use.
Powerball is a unique force for strengthening, lubricating and giving mobility to the wrist joint.

Wrist Osteoarthritis can be a debilitating condition that can be eased by the daily use of Powerball. Find out why over 4 million people have benefited from our products.

Soothe Pain from Osteoarthritis

Powerball generates resistance as you spin it. Even at slow speeds, spinning Powerball is enough to greatly increase circulation and stimulate the flow of oxygen-rich nutrients to inflammation in the wrist. The extra influx of oxygen and nutrients gently soothes any pain and gives relief to the symptoms of osteoarthritis after only a few seconds.

Spinning Powerball on a regular basis will help to maintain strength and a healthy level of oxygen in the wrist joint. While this might not be enough to keep the symptoms of osteoarthritis at bay all of the time, simply giving Powerball a quick spin when you begin to feel the effects of this condition is an simple, risk-free solution with almost immediate effect. The only pain killer you need: Keep Powerball in your bag, car or by the TV for regular spin sessions that will soothe pain and discomfort whenever you need it.

Reduce Stiffness in the Joint

One of the key benefits of Powerball exercise is its ability to stimulate the production of synovial fluid, a natural lubricant. As Powerball takes your wrist through its full circumduction (the circular movement of a limb), it increases the amount of this gel-like substance which can be found in all mobile joints.

Synovial fluid lubricates the wrist joint to:

  • reduce stiffness
  • increase flexibility
  • extend range of motion in the wrist joint

This in turn reduces the pain and stiffness caused by inflammation from osteoarthritis and gradually encourages mobility again.

Benefits

Benefit from Non-Impact Resistance

As you spin Powerball, it generates isometric resistance. Isometric resistance is 100% non-impact. This means that exercise with Powerball will never cause you further pain or serve to worsen your osteoarthritis in some way. As a result, you can use Powerball even if you are already experiencing pain or stiffness in your wrist or fingers. Start by rotating your wrist in slow gentle motions and keep Powerball spinning at a slow speed. After only a few seconds, you should begin to feel any stiffness or pain from osteoarthritis begin to fade.

It is important to remember that while there is no known cure for osteoarthritis, exercise with Powerball can greatly help to relive the symptoms associated with this condition.

Other Methods of Osteoarthritis Treatment

Physical activity –While you may not always feel like it, it is important to keep moving when suffering from osteoarthritis. Even simple activities, such as walking, are enough to reduce pain, improve circulation and ease stiffness in joints.

Natural remedies – Many people with osteoarthritis find natural remedies, such as supplements, oils and even certain foods to be beneficial to their overall heath and well-being.

Massage therapy – Engaging in massage and other relaxation therapies have also been found to be very beneficial for those suffering from osteoarthritis. Massage can help stimulate blood flow, which in return helps to reduce stiffness, inflammation and pain in joints and muscles.

    TENDINITIS IN THE HAND PREVENTING YOUR WORK?
    PROBLEM SOLVED.

    I’m 49 years old and work in a dialysis clinic where I must make a lot of accurate wrist movements from left to right and right to left many times daily. 7 years ago, I developed severe tendinitis and a cyst in my right hand.

    I had surgery to remove the cyst but couldn’t cure the tendinitis. I went to a lot of doctors for rehabilitation but none of them could help me to get back to work. Then my son told me about Powerball® and I couldn’t let go of this little ball. It took me just 4 weeks of using Powerball® to get better and return to work. I’ve been using Powerball® from that day and haven’t had tendinitis again. Thanks for giving me my wrist back.

    WEAK WRIST AFTER A BREAK?
    PROBLEM SOLVED.

    I am a cycling instructor and travel everywhere by bicycle, so when I broke my wrist in a fall from my bike, I was devastated. Thankfully, A&E were able to manipulate my bones back into position without recourse to pins or plates.

    A friend recommended Powerball® and I started with VERY gentle exercise for a couple of minutes, building up strength gradually. The physiotherapy I was given by the NHS was good but basic and my therapist was delighted with the progress I made as a result of Powerball®. My wrist is now back to almost full strength but I still use my Powerball®. I am amazed that something so simple can go from gentle exercise to really powerful exercise as the muscles and tendons start to regain their strength.

    SEVERE CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME?
    PROBLEM SOLVED.

    “When I was 24, I started feeling an acute pain in my right wrist especially when I tried to exercise. My doctor told me I had Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and would need surgery.

    I started looking for other forms of exercise that could help with my problem and purchased a Powerball®. After a few months of use, the numbness in my fingers decreased a lot. It’s now been 3 years since I’m using Powerball® and the numbness has disappeared. I recently started climbing and can feel a huge difference – before Powerball® I couldn’t open a bottle of soda with my right hand and now I climb on the wall almost without problems, thank you guys!”
