Are you someone who prefers to self release your tight and sore muscles before hitting the gym, playing sport or just at the end of a long day?
Have you tried all of the available options in the market, but they are either too harsh on your body, or just don’t seem to do anything for you?
We have some good news for you! We are now stocking Lacrosse Balls at our Parkside Physio practice.
They are used for releasing trigger points….
Lacrosse Balls are small enough to wiggle into those difficult to reach spots, and move smoothly around the contours of your body, such as your Achilles tendon and slightly above it.
Unlike a tennis ball, the lacrosse ball is firm and doesn’t squish when you put too much pressure on it, it isn’t too hard to give you undue pain.
Because of the nature of the material, it has a good grip and can be used efficiently standing up against a wall without slipping.
Regular use of the Lacrosse ball combined with stretches and exercises prescribed by your Physio, will provide you with lasting changes as well as helping you to increase your flexibility, eliminating pain, making your work-outs more effective. The best thing about the Lacrosse ball is that it’s small and light-weight, making it easy to carry with you in your gym or travel bag.
