Hand numbness treatment

Rehabilitation & Strengthening with Powerball

Make hand numbness a thing of the past with Powerball. Find out why over 4 million people worldwide have benefited from Powerball’s isometric resistance exercise. Build strength and flexibility in your hand and relieve the causes of general hand numbness. Powerball is a revolution in upper limb health from your fingertip to your shoulder.

How does Powerball restore feeling in your hands?

Performed daily, the range of motion exercises in Powerball’s physio designed non-impact resistance programme are highly effective in stimulating blood circulation, stretching out tight forearm muscles and reducing localised inflammation & swelling in the wrist – all of which can help greatly reduce tingling and numbness in the hands. (Note; it is recommended you consult your doctor to establish the exact cause of numbness before exercising).

What is the cause of Hand Numbness?

There are several reasons for numbness in the hands, with compression of the median nerve (as it runs through the wrist joint) and poor blood circulation being the two most common – particularly in today’s work environment where long periods of inactivity (sitting) with poor posture, combined with unnatural hand position and repeated short range movement (typing/computers), are prime causes.

Powerball Isometric Exercise

Powerball is the home of gyroscope exercisers. A Powerball has a rotor (green wheel below) 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 (feels like gravity working against you). The faster the rotor spins the more resistance there is against the user. This resistance is purely isometric which is ideal for rehabilitation.

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.
