Reducing pain & inflammation in Tenosynovitis

Wrist Tenosynovitis refers to inflammation of one or more of the sheaths (‘synovium’) carrying the various tendons in the wrist. Similar to Tendonitis, it’s a painful, highly debilitating condition generally brought on by over-use of the tendon by either playing sport or from constant, repetitive movements during work or leisure activity.

Following Powerball’s non-impact resistance programme daily, strengthens the muscles around the wrist and increases range of motion in the joint which helps reduce inflammation in both the tendon and its outer sheath. Additionally, regular 1-2 minute use of Powerball during work or warming up pre-sports activity helps promote blood flow and synovial fluid production around the wrist joint, nourishing and lubricating the tendon and tendon sheath, greatly minimising risk of future inflammation – relief is immediate

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.
