Preventing heavy work related injury & RSI

Try what Physiotherapists recommend

Pain and injuries from repetitive movements in jobs with heavy manual labour can be debilitating and even threaten a persons livelihood in severe cases. Find out why Powerball has helped over 4 million people worldwide. Stay healthy and strong from fingertip to shoulder with Powerballs unique isometric exercise.

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

Powerball has physio designed non-impact resistance programmes, 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.
