Features of set trigger point massage balls




What are the uses and benefits of myofascial massage balls?

What is it for?

  • Muscle contractures: depending on the area to be addressed, you can select one of the products that come in this pack. For example, for lower back pain, the peanut-shaped massage ball is better because its structure allows you to give a deep massage in the center of the back without compromising the functioning of the vertebrae. The spiked ball is harder, so it will be better for treating plantar fasciitis tension. This is a pack also aimed at therapeutic and sports massage professionals.
  • Muscle aches: depending on the intensity and location of the pain, you can select a small, soft ball to treat arm or neck muscles, whose tissues are softer than thigh muscles. With simple balls, a greater range of motion is achieved, which, combined with the pressure of the hands, allows you to relax the muscles that are compromised at that moment. Remember that softer products provide relief to the shallower tissues of the extremities.
  • Myofascial massage: as the fascia is a dense tissue and expands throughout the body to cover the organs, it is better if you use the peanut-shaped ball because it covers more area of action and has a better balance to give relaxation to these tissues. If you are looking for targeted area support, then the spiked ball is best in these cases because it is harder and reaches muscles such as those in the upper back and shoulders. Remember to start with less pressure.
  • Reflexology: as this modality of acupressure therapy is based on exerting force on certain muscle groups, harder balls will have a better relaxing and tension relieving effect. However, when starting with the hands and feet, it is advisable to begin with soft, small balls, even though reflexology has no known risks of complications for these parts of the body. Remember that a correct reflexology technique is based more on pressure than on rubbing these products on the skin.
  • Trigger point massage: Trigger points are often deep and require the use of spiked massage balls, whose shape will put more pressure on muscles that are closer to the center of the body and are thicker. Sometimes the pain is concentrated in the muscle junctions with the tendons and may also be related to other symptoms that make up the so-called myofascial pain syndrome. All of these signs, including pain, are addressed with the pack of massage balls and balls that we offer in this article.
  • Plantar fasciitis: plantar fasciitis is an ailment that appears gradually with exhaustion and stiffness in the sole of the foot, from that moment should be addressed to prevent pain in the heel and then this expands to the metatarsals. The fascia is a resistant and thick tissue that helps to maintain the plantar arch, it is here where you should concentrate the massage with the peanut ball or the rest of the products that come in this multipurpose pack. If the massage starts when there is fatigue, it will prevent in a few sessions that there is an advance of this disease.
  • Release adhesions: it is quite common that after an abdominal surgery, the internal organs look for an accommodation again. During their relocation, adhesions are generated between the internal tissues by poor healing or by the fusion of cells. Only your surgeon can suggest a series of massages to prevent adhesions from occurring. At all times, these massages should be gentle, with the use of the softest balls, remember that this is a support for recovery after surgery.
  • Cellular stimulation: when the person requires a quick recovery from pain and minor physical injuries in the back, for example, this product will facilitate cell regeneration that favors muscle breakdown and pain relief. In addition, it will cause better blood circulation in the affected area. Whenever you want to stimulate a better recovery, you should count on routines offered by a sports doctor, so you will avoid that a bad massage technique has muscular affectations.

What are the benefits?

  • Pain relief: the type of pain will indicate the type of injury that is present and how it should be addressed. Although this pain is annoying, it is one of the few ways the body has to inform that there is an injury.

As it is not about muscle stimulation, you do not need the hardest products.
  • Accelerates recovery: it is related to the increase of blood flow in the affected area and muscle relaxation that will give way to cell activation, so they will multiply so that the body is healthy again, without discomfort in its fibers.
