Myofascial Release: Tennis Ball vs. La Crosse Ball!
If you've been using a Tennis Ball or La Crosse ball to try and get rid of your aches and pains and not getting much relief, Myofascial Release techniques use a 4" softer ball that you can "melt" into. By using the softer type ball, your body doesn't have to go into a protective response when you first lay on it like you would a tennis or la crosse ball. To use the softer 4" ball, place it in an area that feels hot, hard, or tender to you. Once you find "the spot" don't roll around on it. Lay on it for 5 minutes and let you tissues soften. Perform on multiple sites as needed
