What is a massage ball, and how does it work?

Massage balls massage the muscles and relieve stress by rolling, providing deep massage pressure to your muscles. They can give a myofascial release (the manual manipulation of connective tissue) for people who experience pain or stiffness due to knots in their muscles.

A massage ball is a straightforward tool to use. You can massage your body, face or even get your feet involved. It's up to you! These little massage balls are made of either solid metal or rubber/PVC/EVA materials that will massage pressure into your muscles when pushed around. Many massage ball brands offer different massage balls with various levels of massage stimulation. The massage balls come in different sizes and vary in firmness to different massage muscles and parts of the body. You can use s massage ball for lower back pain, on your hands, legs, feet, and many other areas of the body. These massage balls are usually made from rubber or similar material that provides that excellent massage pressure when you start rolling it out against your skin, a massage ball on wall can also be beneficial for relieving trigger points.

There are two main exploring types:

- smooth massage ball

The massage ball is great for anyone who wants to release tension from their muscles after a long day in the office! All you have to do is place the device where you feel tight, sit back and relax while watching TV or do something else until the tender feeling subsides...

How to use a massage ball

You can use the massage ball as part of your self-myofascial release therapy for all body areas and even for your daily back pain relief exercises. It can be used to target pain on your shoulders, low back, hamstrings, quads, calves, or even work on specific triggers/knots that might be found deeper within the muscle. The best way is to do an initial assessment of the affected area and spend time slowly working around his area with gentle pressure. Once you have found a 'hot point' or a knot, focus on working around this area.

When using massage balls, you want to create as much surface friction as possible, so you want to make sure that the massage ball is rolling over the skin and not just dropping down into your muscle. You can use different massage balls, from smooth PVC to marbled massage balls and everything in between, and find which one works best for you.

This makes massage balls an excellent tool for pre-workout warm-up.
