With over 4 million sold worldwide Powerball is the proven solution.
How does Powerball Rehabilitate the rotator cuff?
Following Powerball’s or Powerspin’s physio designed non-impact resistance programmes are the ideal way to improve blood circulation into the rotator cuff, reduce inflammation and stabilise the shoulder joint by strengthening the surrounding muscles and tendons. The isometric exercise with Powerball & Powerspin helps shoulder co-contraction shortening rehab times. Both of these isometric exercise products are also the perfect way to warm-up and lubricate the bursa region pre-sporting activity, helping prevent inflammation and injury.
What are the causes of Rotator Cuff Pain?
The rotator cuff is a network of four muscles attaching the upper arm bone to the shoulder blade and assists in lifting and rotating the limb. It is a frequent source of pain as a result of inflammation of the shoulder tendons or subacromial bursa (a tiny fluid-filled sac that prevents friction during shoulder movement) and is caused by repetitive lifting or overhead movement in sports or lifestyle activities.
Powerball Isometric Rotator Cuff Strengthening
Powerball is the home of gyroscope exercisers. A Powerball has a rotor (green wheel below) which spins on it’s 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.

Improve Rotator Cuff Flexibity & Strength with Powerball
I saw an advert for this saying it was good for shoulder pain. I have been suffering for well over a year now and daily use of the Powerball has made a huge improvement. I am expecting a full recovery with time.
Just a couple of minutes a day (literally) and my shoulder pain eased in 3-4 days. I try to use it every day to keep the joint working.
Physio recommended Powerball to me to rehabilitate my shoulder, glad he did, amazing product.
SPORTS REHABILITATION. BUILDING SHOULDER STRENGTH.
On the 8th of March last year, I tore a Rotator Cuff tendon in my right shoulder whilst playing squash. Before that day I was competing in long distance open water Masters swimming events, playing squash and golf regularly and loving it. I have seen many physiotherapists and consultant osteopaths, had an MRI scan and purchasing numerous products design to help me cure my shoulder. I’ve spent many hours exercising with bands.
However, after nearly eight weeks of using an amber Powerball 250 Hz Regular, I am convinced it has done the trick. I’ve recently bought a Vortex that I’m also very pleased with. I use it for about 30 minutes every day and plan to continue until the day I’m pushing up daisies.
I am now slowly but surely swimming again and playing squash and golf. I’ve been a sad man during the time I could not play my sports. My Powerball has made me a happy man. Sounds very corny but is very very true.

My name is Aidan Robinson and I am a Chiropractor in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, UK.
For the past number of years, I have specialised in the treatment of disabled athletes and motorbike riders.
I find that Powerball works very efficiently to both strengthen grip and rehab arm conditions in both groups of sportsmen. Additionally, I find Powerspin to be highly beneficial for shoulder and upper back rehabilitation.
I personally use both products in my daily strength training sessions and have seen a measurable improvement in my workouts as a result.

Decided to upgrade from my old 250hz Auto start to the 280hz Fusion Pro Auto start & what a difference, the Fusion Pro is a lot smoother & quieter plus you have the added Bonus of the Red & Blue bright LED’s that light up the faster the gyro spins…
I have quite a bit of shoulder pain & out of all the things I have tried to rehabilitate them including Weights, Resistance Band’s TENS Machine,, the Powerball is by far the Best, I can now sleep at night thanks to Powerball.
If you go onto YouTube there is loads of videos showing you different rehabilitation exercises for your Fingers, Wrist, Arm & Shoulder..
Powerball is the Perfect tool.

Extensive, easy to follow exercise guidelines to help with your rehab and strengthening.
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.
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.
