Lacrosse balls were originally used exclusively for the sport of lacrosse. Made of 100% rubber, many have since found that it has the perfect firmness and shape for use as a massage therapy tool. However, for specific areas of the body such as the back, a single ball can exert too much pressure on a spot and can be hard to maneuver around. This is where the Peanut Lacrosse Ball can be extremely effective in helping release tight muscles in those areas.
By exerting pressure with the Peanut Lacrosse Ball, key trigger points and tight muscle knots can be reached and worked on effectively. Known also as myofascial release, this massage can provide great pain relief and soothe muscle soreness from a hard workout.
- Great for Lower Back
- Upper Back
9cm or 6cm?
The choice of size is mainly up to personal preference. Many find that larger lacrosse balls are easier to handle, especially when using on softer surfaces. 6cm can go deeper and can be more targeted.. so if its too painful, you can switch it up and use the 9cm.
Gently place the ball on tight muscle and apply pressure. Hold for 15 sec and move to the next spot, and continue until the spot stops hurting. Use this to warm up before lifting as it can help to increase your mobility and reduce the chances of injury due to tight muscles.
May be used on back, hamstrings, shoulders, chest, neck, calves, or any parts of the body where tight muscles can be found.
*Slight pain and discomfort is normal.
