Powerball has long been the friend of all musicians. Whether you play professionally or for fun Powerball will allow you to play healthier for longer. Find out why over 4 million people worldwide have benefited from Powerball.
Finger grip strength comes directly from the flexor & extensor muscles in the forearm. Slowly spinning Powerball while gripping the sphere only with the fingertips will rapidly build [massive] grip strength, creating strong, nimble & highly dexterous fingers in the process. This is ideal training for musicians and Powerball has physio designed programs and exercises to help you.
Repetitive Strain Injuries from play
The precise, highly repetitive movements required to play an instrument (wind, string, key, drum) puts musicians at substantial risk of developing RSI (overuse) based injuries in the upper limb. Tendonitis, carpal & cubital tunnel syndrome, bursitis – all have their origins in those long rehearsals and start with dull aches originating in fingers, wrists, elbows or shoulders, growing more and more intense until they define your very ability to continue playing.
How Powerball helps Repetitive Strain Injuries
Wrists and fingers source their strength & flexibility from the forearm’s powerful extensor/flexor muscles. Using Powerball daily will have remarkable effects on aiding and preventing the symptoms of RSI for musicians. Powerball gently strengthens and stretches damaged tendons and muscles keeping them strong and supple. Powerball increases synovial fluid production which allows tendons to remain fully lubricated and warmed up allowing musicians maximum flexibility in their upper limbs. Find out why physiotherapists recommend Powerball.
RSI PREVENTING YOU FROM PLAYING MUSIC?
I am a professional musician in a symphony orchestra in Glasgow, Scotland and experienced RSI problems down the front and back of my left forearm as a result of playing viola for a living. My arm and wrist were constantly throbbing from the moment I woke up in the morning.
I tried many different remedies for my problems; massages, acupuncture, ibuprofen cooling gel, stretches. Nothing helped. Then I saw Powerball® advertised online. Within 48hrs of its arrival, my problems were already getting noticeably better. After a just week the RSI had disappeared entirely. This was after a solid 8 months of problems. You can imagine how much this means to me, thank you so much!

DRUM PLAY IMPROVED. ENDURANCE & FLUIDITY
As far as playing drums is concerned, powerball makes your grip stronger and more precise in using your strength. To gain control you can train your fingers separately by holding Powerball only with them and spinning more gently and it all makes you faster drummer. Also my arm condition is better, even playing for few hours almost without break is not tiring. Undeniably the best thing of exercising with Powerball is increasing the skill of moving your wrist fluently – that is a very necessary ability for good drumming. About a month after buying powerball my drum teacher noticed that I move my arms more smoothly and I am more conscious of motions I make.

SEVERE CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME?
“When I was 24, I started feeling an acute pain in my right wrist especially when I tried to exercise. My doctor told me I had Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and would need surgery.
I started looking for other forms of exercise that could help with my problem and purchased a Powerball®. After a few months of use, the numbness in my fingers decreased a lot. It’s now been 3 years since I’m using Powerball® and the numbness has disappeared. I recently started climbing and can feel a huge difference – before Powerball® I couldn’t open a bottle of soda with my right hand and now I climb on the wall almost without problems, thank you guys!”
