The BLACKROLL® BALL 08 is the perfect complement for the larger BLACKROLL® fascia tools. With its 3" (8 cm) diameter, it's just what you need for point-by-point self-massage of different areas of the body. The BALL 08 is outstandingly well-suited for the treatment of deep-lying muscle groups or hard-to-access areas of the body like the neck, posterior, shoulders, and chest. With the BALL 08, you can treat specific potential pain sources.
The BLACKROLL® BALL is available in two different sizes – with a diameter of 3" (8 cm) or 4.7" (12 cm). The two products are perfect for use together. For example, you can use the 3" (8 cm) BALL for point massage and the 4.7" (12 cm) BALL for larger areas. The BLACKROLL® BALL can also be used when space is at a premium, for example on a table, the floor, or against a wall. This permits a variety of exercises for maintaining and improving muscular elasticity and performance.
The BLACKROLL® BALL 12 is the perfect complement for the BLACKROLL® foam roller. With its 4.7" (12 cm) diameter, it's just what you need for point-by-point self-massage of different areas of the body. It's larger than the BLACKROLL® BALL 08, so it's less intensive. That means it's particularly good for severely hardened and adhered areas. However, it's still small enough to access hard-to-reach areas of the body, for example on the back.
There are always multiple factors involved in any pain. The ultimate goal of any success treatment is to find the true causes and to correct them, instead of using pain medication for too long, primarily fighting symptoms. The cause of the pain can often be in completely different places from where it is perceived. It is essential for patients to understand that the entire body is connected together by myofascial chains and meridians along different pathways. To regulate these structures, I particularly like to use the BLACKROLL® MED, the small BLACKROLL® BALL, and the BLACKROLL® DUOBALL in supporting roles, which the patient can then use outstandingly well for exercises at home.
