Wrist Osteoarthritis non Surgical Treatment

How does Powerball help Wrist Osteoarthritis?

Following Powerball’s non-impact resistance programme daily, strengthens the muscles which support the wrist and increases overall range of motion of the joint by applying gentle, rhythmic resistance. This stimulates blood flow & synovial fluid production (tendon lubrication), helping to loosen out and improve function and stabilisation of the wrist during normal daily activities, protecting against shock and stress, which ultimately leads to reduced inflammation and wear.

What is Wrist Osteoarthritis?

Wrist Osteoarthritis is a painful inflammation of the joint(s) following erosion and breakdown of articular cartilage – the ‘shock absorber’ – on the ends of the bones. This most common form of arthritis is also known as degenerative arthritis or arthrosis and is a form of wear and tear on the joints that usually occurs from injuries, age or over-use.

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.
