Effective Treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a localised Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) caused by compression of the median nerve (usually by inflamed tendons) as it passes through the Carpal Tunnel in the wrist. This usually results in pain and loss of function in the hand or wrist, plus numbness, burning or general weakness of the palm and fingers, especially at night.
Powerball is a physician-approved device that is highly-beneficial in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome and has been helping those suffering from the condition for over 25 years. Spinning Powerball for just 2-3 minutes, several times each day provides fast, effective pain relief and a rapid decrease of inflammation in the tendons which are compressing down around the nerve. Experience the benefits for yourself and get back to a healthy and pain-free lifestyle today with Powerball.

Rehabilitate Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Powerball generates isometric resistance as you spin it. Isometric resistance is 100% non-impact, meaning it doesn’t place any strain on sore or inflamed tendons. Unlike concentric or eccentric exercises (shortening and lengthening the muscle), isometric exercise stimulates the wrist while keeping it static. Isometric exercise will never serve to worsen a condition therefore you can use Powerball to treat carpal tunnel syndrome much sooner after injury.
Start by spinning Powerball at slow speeds. As you turn your wrist against Powerball’s resistance, circulation is improved around the compressed nerve (the source of carpal tunnel pain). Increased circulation means oxygen and nutrients are carried to the damaged nerve where they act quickly to repair damage and relieve pain. Gradually, as you increase your spin speed, Powerball will strengthen as well as rehabilitate, quickly guiding you down the path to a long-term recovery.
Relieve Pain in the Wrist
Exercise with Powerball massively boosts circulation along the entire arm. This increase in circulation means rich, oxygenated nutrients are carried to sore tendons in the wrist, where they act fast to soothe and relieve pain. Even at slow speeds, spinning Powerball for just a couple of minutes is enough to feel instant pain relief from an injury like carpal tunnel syndrome. Pick up a Powerball and try it for yourself today. If you’re suffering from wrist pain, don’t go reaching for painkillers – Powerball is a simple and effective remedy that will combat pain in seconds and treat carpal tunnel syndrome with long-term results.
Reduce Stiffness & Increase Flexibility
In more severe cases, pain from carpal tunnel may prevent you from moving your wrist altogether. This is an important factor to watch out for, as an immobilised wrist joint will grow stiff and inflexible over time. One of the key benefits of Powerball exercise is its ability to stimulate the production of synovial fluid, a natural lubricant. As Powerball takes your wrist through its full circumduction (the circular movement of a limb), it increases the amount of this gel-like substance which can be found in all mobile joints.
Synovial fluid lubricates the wrist joint to:
- reduce stiffness
- increase flexibility
- extend range of motion in the wrist joint
This in turn reduces the pain and stiffness caused by carpal tunnel and allows you to slowly regain strength and benefit from a successful recovery.
Prevent CTS from Reoccurring
Sometimes eliminating the cause of your carpal tunnel syndrome isn’t possible. This might be because it was caused by computer use at work, driving or playing your favourite sport. Giving up these activities isn’t always an option – so what can you do to prevent CTS from reoccurring again?
Powerball is a highly effective ally in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. But did you know that as you rehabilitate with Powerball, you also strengthen? Powerball’s resistance gently stimulates the muscle tissue and tendons in the wrist to help you rehab faster, with deep-set, long-term recovery results. Powerball’s combination of rehabilitation and strengthening is what sets it apart from other rehabilitation devices. Using Powerball as part of your CTS treatment means you will be that much stronger when you finally return to work or playing sport.
And here at Powerball, we always recommend that you continue to exercise with our incredible gyroscopes even after your symptoms of carpal tunnel have faded. All it takes is 3 minutes a day. Regular exercise with Powerball maintains wrist and hand health and will help keep you protected from a wrist injury in the future.
