BakBalls can immediately relieve your back pain and stiffness. You can use BakBalls in your own home,in the office, or in the car.
Using BakBalls daily can loosen a stiff and painful spine, accelerate your recovery from back injuries, and reduce the chance of your back pain recurring. By exerting localised pressure on stiff joints, BackBalls allow you to safely self-treat your back pain.
Step 1 Position BakBalls between your shoulder blades and ensure they are positioned horizontally on either side of your spine. To prevent your shirt getting tangled pull your shirt taut around you before you start.
Step 2 Start by using the BakBalls lying on your bed. Bend your knees up, use a pillow behind your head and keep your arms by your sides to reduce pressure from lying on BakBalls. Don't roll vigorously or quickly on BakBalls.
Step 3 Lie STATIONARY on BakBalls for 15-20 seconds, then roll the balls down your spine 2-3cm and lie still again. Continue until BakBalls are resting in your lower back this should take around 5 minutes. Once your tolerance increases, you can increase the pressure from BakBalls by moving to a carpeted floor.
Step 4 To further increase pressure delivered from BakBalls to your back, remove your pillow and fold your arms across your chest.
Step 5 For maximum pressure you can raise your arms overhead as illustrated.
You can also use BakBalls sitting in a chair. Whilst sitting, use BakBalls for no more than 5 minutes, 3 times a day.
