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.

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.
