Reasons for Shoulder Pain?

The shoulder is a highly complex joint that’s particularly susceptible to injury. Large range of movement in comparison to relatively small joint surfaces leaves the shoulder dependent on a complex group of strong muscles, tendons and ligaments (rotator cuff) to maintain stability and prevent it moving/sliding around in the socket.

However, injury and/or overuse during work or sport can lead to stretching & tearing of these ligaments, rendering them too loose to keep the shoulder in position and making it unstable – leading to irritation and shoulder blade pain, even during normal activities.

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.

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.
