Why do so many physicians recommend Powerball for tennis elbow treatment?  

The secret to Powerball is its healing isometric resistance that both rehabilitates and strengthens. Powerball generates isometric resistance as you spin it: the faster you spin, the more resistance it creates. Powerball can generate an incredible 60+ pounds of resistance however, it should only be used at slow and gentle spin speeds at the start of your recovery for effective tennis elbow treatment. As your symptoms quickly start to fade, you can gradually increase your spin speed until your injury is fully rehabilitated and you feel strong and healthy once elbow treatment, tennis elbow, elbow pain, powerball

+ Non-impact resistance

Tennis elbow can be a painful condition and the thought of exercising a sensitive elbow joint may not be very appealing. But with Powerball, you need never worry about overexerting yourself or worsening your injury. Powerball’s isometric resistance is 100% non-impact, meaning it places absolutely zero strain on sore or damaged tendons.

100% non-impact = 100% pain-free.

Best of all, with Powerball you control the intensity of your exercise. Slow, gentle speeds for rehabilitation, rapid, high speeds for strengthening. Spin it fast or spin it slow – with Powerball there are a myriad of benefits to gain at any speed.


+ Strengthen as you recover

As you spin Powerball, its isometric resistance engages the entire kinetic chain of the arm, which has two important effects:

1. Rehab: Circulation is increased, meaning oxygen and healing nutrients are driven to the injured lateral tendons in the elbow. These nutrients directly target any inflamed tendons and act quickly to relieve pain and repair damage.

2. Strengthening: All of the muscles in your forearm are activated. Powerball’s resistance delves deep into tissue fibres, strengthening each muscle from its core and building overall muscle mass from fingertip to shoulder.

This active combination of rehabilitation and strengthening means you benefit from shorter recovery times, without having to compromise on effective, long-lasting tennis elbow treatment. Kick off your recovery today with Powerball. All it takes is 3 minutes a day to start seeing the effects of this unique and powerful gyroscope.

+ Reduce stiffness & increase flexibility

Tennis elbow treatment is made simple with Powerball. Spinning Powerball promotes the production of synovial fluid, which lubricates the elbow joint and alleviates any stiffness that may have developed as a result of your condition. Increase range of motion, build flexibility and reduce stiffness – it’s as easy as picking up a Powerball. Even from the very first use of Powerball, you will begin to feel the difference as muscle stiffness and tendon pain starts to break down in the elbow joint.


+ Prevent tennis elbow and other injuries

Not only is Powerball highly effective for tennis elbow treatment, but it can also be used to prevent the injury from occurring (or reoccurring). Think of it as an extra layer of body armour for your upper limbs: spinning Powerball for as little as 3 minutes a day is enough to significantly strengthen the muscles and tendons in your elbow. Strong and supple muscles and tendons are much less likely to be affected by RSI like tennis elbow, so you can continue to maintain an active lifestyle, without ever having to worry about this condition reoccurring again.

What is Tennis Elbow / Lateral Epicondylitis?

Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is a type of RSI (repetitive strain injury) that affects the lateral tendons in the elbow (the small, bony lump on the outside of your elbow). Tennis elbow is usually caused by constant repetitive movements that, when carried out over time a long period of time, begin to irritate and strain the tendons in the elbow. This leads to inflammation and pain that may prevent joint movement and even begin to affect your every-day life.

RSI like tennis elbow are usually caused by repetitive actions, such as typing, using a computer mouse, playing a musical instrument or sport, or driving. It is important to take a break from whatever is causing your RSI for effective tennis elbow treatment. The symptoms of golfer’s elbow (or climber’s elbow) are quite similar to those of tennis elbow and they both affect the medial tendons around the elbow joint. While regular Powerball exercise paired with rest, ice and stretching will soon see you fully recovered from tennis elbow, it is advised that you seek medical advice if you are unsure about which condition you have.

What does the physical therapist say?



Track your tennis elbow rehabilitation progress

A battery-free LCD speed meter is a feature of many of our Powerball models and is powered solely by the magnetic induction created by Powerball’s spinning rotor. With 6 different exercise modes, the speed meter allows you to track your progress and will motivate you during your tennis elbow treatment.


How Powerball works


tennis elbow treatment, powerball

With over 4 million sold worldwide, Powerball is the world’s number one gyroscope. Inside the shell of a Powerball is a rotor (green wheel), which spins on an axis. As the rotor spins, it creates resistance, which pushes against your efforts to spin Powerball. The faster you spin Powerball, the more resistance it creates and the harder it becomes to spin. This resistance is non-impact and 100% isometric, making Powerball the perfect device for tennis elbow treatment.

Symptoms & Causes of Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow is a condition that causes pain around the outside of your elbow. The medical term for tennis elbow is lateral epicondylitis. It is named this because it causes pain near your lateral epicondyle, which is the bony part of your outer elbow. Tennis elbow is typically an overuse injury caused by repetitive movements and this is why it is known as a repetitive strain injury (RSI).

Tennis elbow is a type of tendinopathy, which means it affects your tendons. It develops when the tendon that joins your forearm muscles to the outside of your elbow (Common Extensor) becomes inflamed or has small tears. Tennis elbow is a common injury that will affect between 1-3% of the population. Anyone can develop tennis elbow (sports people, computer users, drivers, manual workers etc), however, the average age profile is usually between 40-50yrs old. It is most likely to develop in your dominant arm as that is what you may be using most often.

Tennis elbow treatment can last anything between 6 weeks and 2 years. How long Tennis Elbow will affect an individual is dependent on how severe the condition is & how effective your tennis elbow treatment is.

Most commonly the symptoms will start with pain and tenderness on the outside of your elbow. You may also feel pain in your forearm and even down into your wrist. The pain you feel in your wrist and forearm originates from the inflamed elbow tendon and lesions that can occur in the supinator and pronator muscles in your forearm. The symptoms from tennis elbow can either develop over time from repetitive movements and can be hard to link them to any particular event or injury. Symptoms typically show up a couple of days after the activity that caused the problem. For some people, symptoms will be mild which will allow quicker rehabilitation times. However, symptoms can be very severe and debilitating stopping you from carrying out simple day to day tasks.

Symptoms may become more prominent in the action of gripping such as playing a sport or lifting objects. If there is increased pain when you bend your wrist backwards this is also another typical symptom of Tennis Elbow (lateral epicondylitis). The range of motion in the elbow joint will be affected with almost all cases feeling a stiffness around the elbow joint. A stiffness and tension in the forearm supinator and pronator may also be present.
