Powerball’s Golfers Elbow treatment – How it works…

The soothing, non-impact resistance generated by following Powerball’s physio designed Golfer’s-Elbow treatment programme radically increases the supply of oxygen enriched blood and its collagen-rebuilding element into the inflamed tendons. Increasing blood supply is critical in treating Golfer’s Elbow, an area where blood supply is typically poor, even in normal, healthy tissue – Powerball also; 

  • Increases flexibility & mobility while relieving stiffness in the elbow Joint
  • Strengthens the surrounding muscles especially the forearm flexor & Extensor muscles.
  • Prevents further muscle tearing as a result from repetitive movements or RSIs
  • Reduces muscle contraction & reduces inflammation
  • Stops muscle wastage while in recovery
  • Non-Impact – Allows gentle recovery for damaged muscles, bones & tendons.

How does a Powerball Gyroscope work?

Powerball is the home of gyroscope exercisers. A Powerball has a rotor (green wheel) which spins on its axis creating resistance against the user. This resistance is created by the rotor as you turn your wrists which is known as gyroscopic precision. The faster the rotor spins the more resistance there is against the user. This resistance is purely isometric which is ideal for rehabilitation.

 

What is Golfer’s Elbow?

It is similar to the more common Tennis Elbow. Golfer’s Elbow (Medial Epicondylitis) is an overuse injury affecting two major muscles controlling your wrist and fingers (flexor-pronator muscles). Both originate from a common tendon, which attaches to your medial epicondyle – that bony ‘bump’ on the inside of your elbow. The condition presents as pain and tenderness radiating down the forearm as a result of inflammation in strands making up the tendon.

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.
