Preventing heavy work related injury & RSI

Heavy manual labour repetitive strain injury is a common occurrence.

What Causes Repetitive Strain Injuries

Mechanics tightening wrenches from awkward positions; assembly-line operators repeating identical tasks over and over; weight lifters targeting the same muscle; construction workers…fishermen…farmers – many jobs result in daily overuse of body parts leading to micro-tearing in the muscles, ligaments, tendons and nerves. Cumulative tearing over time leads to inflammation in the soft tissue – scar tissue forms, blood flow reduces and stiffness with restricted joint movement brings pain and discomfort in the wrists and arms.

How Powerball aids RSI’s

Using your Powerball for as little as 3 minutes daily will greatly reduce RSI and leave users healthy and strong from fingertip to shoulder. Powerball has also a physio designed non-impact resistance programme, which performed daily, helps prevent such soft tissue inflammation by increasing strength and flexibility in the muscles & joints through non-impact resistance; a 2-minute spin significantly enhances blood flow and synovial fluid production right throughout the arm & wrist and builds endurance to help sustain ongoing work activities.

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.
