RSI or Carpal Tunnel from Gaming and Computer Use?

Intro
Intro

Sore wrist, stiff fingers or hand pain from gaming or computer use? Two of the biggest causes of RSI (repetitive strain injury) are regular computer use (typing, using a mouse) and playing video games. So it’s no surprise that thousands of office workers and gamers worldwide suffer from RSI each year.

Powerball is a highly-effective gyroscopic exerciser that uses isometric resistance to combat RSI, stopping the condition in its tracks and relieving symptoms. Powerball should be on every worker’s desk and beside every gamer’s console – just ask the other 4 million customers who have successfully used Powerball to strengthen and rehabilitate from an RSI.

Combat Symptoms of RSI & Carpal Tunnel

An RSI (repetitive strain injury) develops when a person continuously carries out small, minute movements over a long period of time. Using a gaming controller; typing; using a mouse and scrolling on a mobile phone are common examples of repetitive movements that can lead to an RSI. Powerball is a world-class product for rehabilitation and strengthening. At only the size of a tennis ball, this powerful device is enough to combat and cure common RSI, such as:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Tendinitis
  • Tennis Elbow
  • Golfer’s Elbow
  • General muscle discomfort & pain

As you spin it, Powerball’s isometric resistance works against the movements of your wrist and effectively stimulates your muscles, soothing hand pain and rehabilitating RSI. All it takes is just 3 minutes a day to experience the benefits. What’s more, Powerball’s resistance is non-impact meaning that it won’t place any strain on sore muscles or worsen an existing RSI.

Relieve Wrist, Hand & Finger Pain

RSI will develop as a result of muscle overuse and can worsen over time if left untreated. Common symptoms of RSI include discomfort or irritation in the joints, muscle soreness and wrist or hand pain. Not only can these conditions take weeks to heal, but they may also prevent you from working and can have a serious impact on daily life.

Ever taken a painkiller to soothe an RSI like carpal tunnel syndrome? Don’t. Use Powerball instead: instant pain relief, use it as much as you like, long-lasting effects and long-term relief and prevention – Powerball is the only painkiller you need.

How does Powerball rehabilitate and relieve pain?

Powerball produces isometric resistance as you spin it.
This isometric resistance works against the movements of your wrist to stimulate circulation and promote the flow of rich, oxygenated nutrients to painful muscles.

Once here, these nutrients immediately soothe any pain and begin repairing damaged muscle tissue. This leads to active pain relief and quick RSI rehabilitation with long-term results. All it takes is just 3 minutes a day to start feeling the powerful relief that comes with spinning a Powerball.

Prevent Carpal Tunnel From Gaming & Computer Use

Powerball’s combination of active strengthening and rehabilitation not only repairs damaged muscle tissue, but it also acts as an extra layer of body amour that protects you from any future injury. Spinning Powerball at higher speeds keeps your muscles strong and supple – exactly what you need to combat a long day at the office or a marathon gaming session with friends.

Thanks to its convenient size, Powerball is ideal for storing on your desk at work or on the coffee table at home. Simply give it a quick spin during breaks and begin to feel the difference immediately. Whether you use Powerball to build muscle, boost circulation or to rehabilitate from RSI, this revolutionary device will ensure your muscles always remain in great shape.

Boost Circulation During Inactivity

Inactivity is another issue that many people experience when it comes to gaming and computer use. These activities only really require the need for minute movements of the fingers, leaving the hands and wrists stationary and inactive. Inactivity is a problem as it leads to poor circulation, which leaves muscles feeling weak from lack of oxygen.

That’s why Powerball should be beside every game console and every computer. Spinning Powerball for regular intervals for even a couple of seconds is enough to boost circulation in the upper limbs and prevent the onset of numbness or injury. We also offer a range of other effective exercisers in our online store, which perfectly complement Powerball exercise and help to further prevent inactivity-related injury. Maintaining healthy hands, fingers and wrists has never been easier than with Powerball.

    TENDINITIS IN THE HAND PREVENTING YOUR WORK?
    PROBLEM SOLVED.

    I’m 49 years old and work in a dialysis clinic where I must make a lot of accurate wrist movements from left to right and right to left many times daily. 7 years ago, I developed severe tendinitis and a cyst in my right hand.

    I had surgery to remove the cyst but couldn’t cure the tendinitis. I went to a lot of doctors for rehabilitation but none of them could help me to get back to work. Then my son told me about Powerball® and I couldn’t let go of this little ball. It took me just 4 weeks of using Powerball® to get better and return to work. I’ve been using Powerball® from that day and haven’t had tendinitis again. Thanks for giving me my wrist back.

    CARPAL TUNNEL FROM COMPUTER USE?
    PROBLEM SOLVED.

    4 years ago, I started a desk job that involved typing and using a mouse all day. Within a few months, I had shooting wrist pain from RSI and knew I needed to do something to avoid long-term health issues.

    After some intense Internet searching, it seemed I could hold off a doctor’s visit and more expensive treatment by improving my wrist strength so I bought Powerball® and started using it during free moments at work. I found that when I start to feel a little tension in my wrists, a few minutes with Powerball® at low speed relieved discomfort immediately. 4 years on and no complications from repetitive stress or Carpal Tunnel Syndrome – I owe the fact that I’m not wearing a brace to Powerball®.

    TENNIS ELBOW FROM OVER-USE OF A LAPTOP?
    PROBLEM SOLVED

    I got tennis elbow from constantly using my laptop and it was a major issue. It got so bad, I couldn’t lift a glass of water using my right arm, my elbow would just give way. I started some exercise to help strengthen and rebuild but it was hard going, causing me more injury at times.

    I got really fed up with the pain and having a useless arm, especially since I am right handed, so I went searching online for something better and discovered Powerball®. I used it regularly and it really has given strength back and reduced my pain considerably, a fantastic outcome. It’s all taken only a few weeks so it’s a great result as I suffered for months before this.
