Powerball: Simple treatment for wrist tendonitis

Wrist tendonitis can be a painful condition that can have a negative impact on daily life. For this reason, it is important to take time and care when treating the condition. Powerball is a simple, handheld device that is highly effective in the treatment for wrist tendonitis. Spinning Powerball at slow speeds for just 3 minutes a day will not only relieve the symptoms of wrist tendonitis, but regular continued use will also prevent repetitive strain injuries (RSI) from reoccurring.

+ Immediate pain relief

Powerball generates isometric resistance as you spin it. This resistance works its way along the entire kinetic chain of the arm, delving deep into the muscle fibre and driving circulation to inflamed tendons in the wrist. This boost in circulation carries with it oxygen-rich nutrients, which soothe sore tendons and relieve pain. What’s more, these nutrients act fast to repair damaged muscle tissue and alleviate inflammation for a speedy recovery.

+ 100% non-impact healing

Isometric resistance is 100% non-impact, meaning it doesn’t place any strain on sore or inflamed tendons. Instead, spinning Powerball soothes and relieves pain from inflammation, rehabilitating and rejuvenating tendons in the fast and effective treatment for wrist tendonitis.

wrist tendonitis, wrist pain+ Improve wrist mobility

Reduce stiffness, increase flexibility and increase range of motion in the wrist joint: exercising with Powerball increases the production of synovial fluid which lubricates your joints and tendon sheaths.

This in turn reduces the pain and stiffness caused by inflamed tendon sheaths and allows you to slowly regain power and recover strength in the wrist. 

+ Strengthen as you recover

Using Powerball to aid with the treatment for wrist tendonitis, allows you to strengthen as you recover from the condition. Powerball should always be used at very low spin speeds at the start of your recovery. At this stage, the increased blood flow that Powerball promotes will accelerate the healing process. As the symptoms of wrist tendonitis begin to fade, you can gradually increase your spin speed and start using Powerball to build strength back into the wrist joint. This pairing of rehabilitation and strengthening is what sets Powerball apart from other rehabilitation devices. See the difference for yourself – start spinning Powerball today to get your wrists feeling healthy and strong again in no time.

Short recovery, long-term resultstreatment for wrist tendonitis, powerball

Regular exercise with Powerball is enough to efficiently speed up recovery times in the treatment for wrist tendonitis. The way in which Powerball strengthens as you rehabilitate leaves your muscles and joints stronger and more supple than they would usually be after standard treatment. This dual action of strengthening and rehabilitation allows you to heal much faster and keeps recovery time short. Best of all, exercising with Powerball keeps you strong even after you’ve recovered, allowing you to benefit from long-lasting muscle and joint health and prevent RSI, such as wrist tendonitis from reoccurring.

What causes wrist tendonitis?

The wrist joint is surrounded by tendons, which are constantly in use. Repetitive moments carried out on a regular basis can cause these tendons to become irritated and inflamed. If inflammation occurs where a tenon passes over bone or where two tendons cross paths it can lead to pain when moving the wrist joint. Wrist tendonitis (or tenosynovitis) is such a common condition, because there are so many tendons in the wrist joint which can possibly be affected by overuse.

Impact injuries and overuse are two of the most common causes of wrist tendonitis. When constant, repetitive concentric (shortening of the muscle) or eccentric (lengthening of the muscle) movements are carried out, such as those required to use a computer mouse, drive a car or play an instrument or sport, it can irritate the wrist tendons and lead to the development of an RSI like wrist tendonitis.

How long does treatment for wrist tendonitis last?powerball, wrist tendonitis treatment

There are contributing factors to estimate how long the treatment for wrist tendonitis will take:

  • Rehabilitation response time – The longer you go untreated the longer it may take to relieve the symptoms.
  • Age – As the body gets older the healing process slows.
  • Resting time – Continuing the same practices that caused the tendonitis will result in longer rehabilitation times.
  • Regular Powerball use – Spinning Powerball at gentle speeds for as little as 3 minutes each day is enough to sufficiently reduce overall recovery time.

Other recommended treatment for wrist tendonitis

  • Resting from the causes of wrist tendonitis, such as impact sports and repetitive movements (e.g. typing, using a computer mouse, driving, etc.) will speed up recovery times and reduce the risk of worsening the injury or allowing it to reoccur.
  • Ice packs are great to help reduce inflammation. It is extremely important to rest the wrist with ice if swelling and extreme pain are present.
  • Regular stretching and wrist massage with a physiotherapist if possible, however, self-massage is also effective. Wrist tendonitis can cause tearing in the forearm muscles (supinators & pronators) which may need deep tissue massage to resolve. This can be quite painful, so it is recommended that you seek the help of a professional in such cases.

Powerball – How it Works

treatment for wrist tendonitis, 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. The Power is in your hands.


LCD Speed Meter – Track Wrist Strength Gains

Powerball’s battery-free LCD speed meter uses magnetic energy created by the spinning Powerball rotor. This will allow you to track your progress and push yourself along during your treatment for wrist tendonitis.
