Wrist Tendonitis (tenosynovitis) Treatment

 Wrist Tendonitis treatment made simple with Powerball

Powerball has been helping wrist tendonitis sufferers for over 20 years. Powerball is easy to use, extremely effective and will not only help you relieve the symptoms of Tendonitis but continued use will stop repetitive strain injuries (RSI) from recurring.

Why do so many physicians recommend Powerball for rehabilitation?  

The key to Powerball is the healing isometric resistance exercise Powerball affords you during your wrist tendonitis treatment/recovery. Powerball is a gyroscope that creates resistance from a spinning rotor simply by turning your wrists. The faster you turn your wrists, the faster the rotor spins, the more resistance you will feel. For rehabilitation, you should only use Powerball at slow spin speeds, however, Powerball can create upwards of 60+ pounds of isometric resistance.

Repetitive Strain Injuries like Wrist Tendonitis (Lateral Epicondylitis) occur due to concentric (shortening of the muscle) or eccentric (lengthening of the muscle) repetitive movements. Whether that is activities like sport or typing etc.

Will isometric resistance exercise worsen my Wrist Tendonitis condition?

Unlike concentric and eccentric movements (e.g Bicep Curls) with isometric exercise, there is no change in joint angle or muscle length as you exercise. Isometric exercise is 100% non-impact so there will be no strain on inflamed wrist tendons. Powerball should be used at very low spin speeds at the start of your recovery, it is the increased blood flow that Powerball promotes that will accelerate the healing at this stage. As the symptoms are improving you can increase the resistance gradually and start using Powerball to build strength back into the wrist.

How long will Wrist Tendonitis take to heal?

There are contributing factors to how long Wrist Tendonitis will take to heal such as:
– Rehabilitation Response Time – The longer you go untreated the longer it may take to relieve the symptoms.
– Individuals Age – as the body gets older the healing process slows.
– Person’s Activities – Continuing the same practices that caused the Tendonitis will result in longer rehabilitation times.

Why is Powerball so effective in the Treatment of Wrist Tendonitis?

  1. Powerball’s isometric resistance massively increases oxygen and nutrient-rich blood to the inflamed wrist tendons. Promoting this blood flow will accelerate the healing process and relieve the symptoms faster.
  2. Build Strength – It is critical to rest inflamed tendons when they are very painful. Ice and resting is necessary if there is any swelling or severe pain. However, physical therapy is important in the long-term treatment.  Powerball will allow you to build wrist strength with 100% non-impact isometric resistance and leave you with strong and healthy wrists.
  3. Reduce Stiffness, increase flexibility and increase the range of motion in the wrist joint. Using Powerball increases the production of synovial fluid with lubricates your joints and tendon sheaths.
  4. Wrist Tendonitis Prevention –  Powerball is extremely effective in the rehabilitation of repetitive strain injuries like wrist tendonitis, however, it is just as effective with long-term prevention.
  5. Stops muscle wastage during recovery. Powerball allows you to maintain muscle strength and mass due to its unique resistance training.

What other Wrist Tendonitis treatments do we recommend?

  • Rest from causes of Wrist Tendonitis like impact sports and repetitive movements will speed up your recovery times.
  • Ice. This will help with the reduction of inflammation. It is extremely important to ice and rest if swelling and extreme pain are present.
  • Stretching & Massage. With a physio if possible, however, self-massage is also effective. Wrist Tendonitis can cause tearing of 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 a professional.

Physio designed Wrist Tendonitis Treatment Programmes

Powerball has physio designed non-impact resistance programmes designed for the rehabilitation of wrist tendonitis. Followed daily will give maximum wrist tendonitis relief, shortening rehab times and improving wrist health fast.

How it works

Powerball is the home of gyroscopic exercisers. A Powerball has a rotor (green wheel) 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. The faster the rotor spins the more resistance the user will feel. This resistance is purely isometric which is why it is perfectly suited for rehabilitation. At low rotor spin speeds, the resistance will be soothing and gentle for the early stages of rehabilitation. However, as you get stronger you can ramp up the resistance simply by turning your wrists faster. At high spin speeds our metal range of Powerballs can develop over 60+ pounds of isometric resistance.

LCD Speed Meter -Track Wrist Strength Gains

Powerballs battery-free LCD meter uses magnetic energy created by the spinning Powerball rotor. This will allow you to track your progress and push yourself along during your recovery period from wrist tendonitis.

What is Wrist Tendonitis?

Wrist Tendonitis refers to the rapid convergence of white blood cells on an injured wrist tendon, provoking an inflammatory reaction. It’s a painful and highly debilitating condition generally brought on by overuse of the tendon either from playing a sport or by constant, repetitive movements of the wrist during work or leisure activity.
