Golfers Elbow Treatment (Medial Epicondylitis)

Golfer’s elbow treatment made simple with Powerball

Powerball has been a trusted rehabilitation device for those suffering from golfer’s elbow for over 20 years. Powerball is easy to use, extremely effective and will not only cure the symptoms of golfer’s elbow, but continued use will also prevent this debilitating RSI from recurring.

✔ Strengthen as you recover

✔ Non-impact golfer’s elbow treatment

✔ Reduce stiffness

✔ Active golfer’s elbow prevention

Why do so many physicians recommend Powerball for golfer’s elbow treatment?

The secret behind Powerball is its healing isometric resistance that both rehabilitates and strengthens. Powerball generates isometric resistance as you spin it: the faster you spin, the more resistance it creates. Powerball can generate an incredible 60+ pounds of resistance however, only low levels of resistance should be used at the start of your recovery for effective golfer’s elbow treatment. As your symptoms quickly start to fade, you can gradually increase your spin speed until your injury is fully rehabilitated and you feel strong and healthy once more.

 

+ Strengthen as you recover

As you spin Powerball, its isometric resistance engages the entire kinetic chain of the arm, which has two important effects:

1. Rehab: Circulation is increased, meaning oxygen and healing nutrients are driven to the injured medial tendons in the elbow. These nutrients directly target any tears in the tendons and act quickly to relieve pain and repair damage.

2. Strengthening: All of the muscles in your forearm are activated. Powerball’s resistance delves deep into tissue fibres, strengthening each muscle from its core and building overall muscle mass from fingertip to shoulder.

Kick off your recovery today with Powerball. All it takes is 3 minutes a day to start seeing the powerful effects of this unique gyroscope.

 

+ Non-impact golfer’s elbow treatment

Powerball’s isometric resistance is 100% non-impact meaning it places absolutely zero additional strain on sore or damaged tendons in the elbow. You control your recovery: choose the speed and intensity of your golfer’s elbow treatment simply by spinning Powerball faster or slower – the choice is yours. With this in mind, you need never worry about over-exerting yourself or worsening your injury when you exercise with Powerball.

 

+ Reduce stiffness & increase flexibility

Spinning Powerball promotes the production of synovial fluid, which lubricates the elbow joint and alleviates any stiffness that may have developed as a result of your condition. Increase range of motion, build flexibility and reduce stiffness – it’s as easy as picking up a Powerball. Even from the very first use of Powerball, you will begin to feel the difference as muscle stiffness and tendon pain start to break down in the elbow joint.

Not only is Powerball highly effective for golfer’s elbow treatment, but it can also be used to prevent the injury from occurring (or reoccurring) in the future. Think of it as an extra layer of body armour for your upper limbs: spinning Powerball for as little as 3 minutes a day is enough to significantly strengthen the muscles and tendons in your elbow. Strong and supple muscles and tendons are much less likely to be affected golfer’s elbow, so you can continue to maintain an active lifestyle without ever having to worry about this condition reoccurring again.

 

What is golfer’s elbow?

Golfer’s elbow (or medial epicondylitis) is a condition affecting the medial epicondyle (the small, bony lump on the inside of your elbow). Also known as ‘climber’s elbow’, this condition doesn’t just affect golfers and climbers, but really anyone who regularly engages in activities that rely heavily on elbow movement. Usually golfer’s elbow will appear as a dull pain in the elbow joint, which is sometimes mistaken for overexertion. And because golfer’s elbow develops gradually and does not usually cause swelling or inflammation, it can sometimes be difficult to diagnose. It is recommended that you seek medical advice if you think you may be suffering from golfer’s elbow.

With over 4 million sold worldwide, Powerball is the world’s number one gyroscope. Inside the shell of a Powerball is a rotor (green wheel), which spins on an axis. As the rotor spins, it creates resistance, which pushes against your efforts to spin Powerball. The faster you spin Powerball, the more resistance it creates and the harder it becomes to spin. This resistance is non-impact and 100% isometric, making it perfect for golfer’s elbow treatment and strengthening.

Experience these benefits and more with this unique handheld gyroscope: start spinning with Powerball today and see the incredible difference for yourself. Choose from the wide range of Powerball models and strengthening accessories available in our online store – the Power® is in your hands.
