Tennis Ball Therapy
What Exactly Is Tennis Ball Therapy?
Basically at its core, tennis ball therapy, is using a simple tennis ball to alleviate muscle pain in your body by pushing the painful trigger points onto the ball to release the stress that's causing the discomfort. Simple, right? Well, yes indeed it is.
Whether the discomfort in your muscles is being caused from repetitive motion, bad posture, lifting, or perhaps even an old injury, a simple bright green tennis ball can become your go-to therapy for reducing the symptoms and releasing the trigger points that are causing you pain.
Tennis Ball Therapy Works!
As someone who has suffered from nagging neck, shoulder and back pain for years and years, I can honestly say that from my own experience, this therapy rocks!
I have tried chiropractic care on and off for many years for my neck and shoulder pain, and while it works temporarily, it is costly and time consuming.
Tennis ball therapy was actually recommended to me by my chiropractor as a method of pain relief to use to alleviate pain in between my appointments with him.
So I initially tried it by leaning the tennis ball against the wall which is easy to do, although the ball sometimes drops to the floor.
Depending on where the pain is, you can try the wall method or, in my particular case, using the floor works better.
I love, love, love this method of pain relief. First of all, it works great!!! And in addition, it's simple, free, and you can do it anywhere. I only wish I had known about it sooner!!
(Disclaimer: Please check with your doctor before trying this method of pain relief for your particular problem).
