This Trigger Point Massage Ball is an essential tool for athletes or anyone suffering from minor muscle aches and pains. It is perfect for self-deep tissue massage and to help manage conditions such as plantar fasciitis, tightness, post-workout recovery and muscle trigger points. The best method of use includes applying pressure to the muscle against a floor, wall or other hard surface and either sustaining it or using cross-frictional type massage over the muscle/trigger points.
Sometimes the use of a massage ball can be uncomfortable, depending on the patient, their condition and its severity. If you are unsure about how much force to apply, begin gently and start with shorter treatments (<15 seconds), slowly working up to longer as tolerated. If you have any enquiries, please contact your local health care practitioner for advice.
