Knitting & Crocheting - Repetitive Strain Injuries

Feeling the pain from knitting?

Most avid knitters and crocheters have felt the pain from their passion. Cramped hands and pains can be the norms which can develop into more serious conditions. Powerball is like body armour for your hands, wrists & arms. Find out why over 4 million people have benefited from Powerball’s isometric exercise.

Reduce stiffness & soothe pain

Traditionally, Knitters have been using gloves and braces to try and rehabilitate the discomfort but this only serves to mask the symptoms without actually getting to the root cause. Spinning Powerball however, increases muscular control and blood flow in the arms, hands, and wrists. Powerball reduces pain and stiffness for existing sufferers while also strengthening the muscles and joints to help prevent against future issues.

 

How Powerball Works

Powerball efficiently stretches, strengthens and increases flexibility in the muscles, joints & fascia (connective tissue fibres) right throughout the arm, helping to fully warm up the limbs before knitting, while also enhancing the range of motion in the elbow and wrists and help to significantly reduce any existing inflammation via increased blood flow – all of which keeps you pain free and strong from fingertip to shoulder.

Knit for longer pain-free

While Powerball relieves and prevents repetitive strain Injuries it also strengthens your fingers, wrists & arms. Knitters will see a marked increase in their knitting endurance as they will be able to knit & crochet for longer without pain.

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.
