Wrist Rehab - Developing wrist strength & mobility

Remove the monotony of wrist rehab with Powerball

Powerballs revolutionary isometric exercise improves wrist strength and shortens wrist rehab times dramatically. Powerball is perfect for the recovery from;

  • Repetitive strain injuries (RSI)
  • Wrist sprains, fractures & Breaks
  • General wrist strengthening

Powerball’s isometric non-impact exercise stimulates blood circulation right throughout the wrist and arm. This warms up and loosens out ‘tight’ muscle fibres and increases synovial fluid production (lubrication) in all tendons. This will give increased flexibility, strength & range of motion in the wrist joint.

Powerball is Body Armour for your wrists

It helps you build strength and rehabilitate from wrist breaks and fractures.

Relieves and cures repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) like;

Why Wrist Pain from RSI’s?

Wrist strength & mobility originates in the powerful forearm flexor and extensor muscles which are attached by tendons to the wrist and elbow joints. Overloading or bending of the wrist with excessive force, repetitive movement or awkward posture can cause inflammation. RSIs can occur for many reasons like poor posture while typing, using power tools or even holding difficult yoga poses. Pain comes from tendon inflammation on either end of the flexor/extensor muscles resulting in pain and substantially decreased mobility and range of motion in the wrist joint.

Powerball Isometric Exercise

Powerball is the home of gyroscope exercisers. A Powerball has a rotor (green wheel below) which spins on its 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. If you want to find out more about how a Powerball gyroscope works see our blog: What is a Gyroscope?

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.
