Massage has long been respected for the powerful therapeutic effects it can have on soft tissues. Two forms of bodywork in particular, myofascial release and trigger point therapy, can be extraordinarily effective at relieving deeply-held chronic pain problems originating in soft tissues. Now PrimeKinetix, the innovative company behind such advanced products as the PostureMedic and the Pcore Magnetic Heat Belt, makes it easier than ever for practitioners and patients alike to take full advantage of this healing modality. We're proud to acquaint you with MyoBalls, a revolutionary new product that can prove as beneficial as it is simple. This loop of threaded foam balls can be used for massage by a professional therapist or as self-massage for professional athletes, weekend warriors and everyday people who are fighting musculoskeletal pain.
The MyoBalls massage tool gets its name from the form of soft tissue treatment known as myofascial release. Fascia and other connective tissues are prone to experiencing chronic tension, tightness, poor blood flow and pain for a variety of reasons. Everything from acute or overuse injuries to infections and a sedentary lifestyle can promote myofascial pain and stiffness. Myofascial release is a manual bodywork technique that aims to release the tightness in and constraints on afflicted soft tissues, relieving pain and improving function.
While a variety of massage tools can be helpful in myofascial release, our MyoBalls product takes things one step further by offering, not only self-massage for painful extremities, but self massage that conveys a full, equalized 360 degrees of pressure around the entire limb being treated. A length of tubing threaded through the MyoBalls applies 5 to 15 pounds of pressure from each MyoBalls in the "chain" as the product is moved up and down the arm or leg. This form of self-massage works on trigger points, areas of tight fascia or muscle that often exhibit local tenderness and/or refer pain to other areas. MyoBalls are available in 5-ball or 7-ball arrangements, with the 5-ball option ideal for smaller extremities and the 7-ball option better suited for larger extremities or body types. The general-purpose "MyoBalls Original" provides less pressure than the firmer "MyoBalls Pro," the choice of many athletes.
Since myofascial compression and pain figures so prominently in so many different conditions, MyoBalls offer extraordinary versatility as massage tools for a wide range of body solutions. You may find MyoBalls invaluable to relieving the symptoms of:
In addition to undoing muscle knots and trigger points, MyoBalls also have a beneficial effect on circulation, stimulating both blood flow and lymphatic drainage to boost immune response and speed healing. Any health care professional seeking an additional healing modality for patients, and any individual looking for a safe, natural way to feel and function better, should give MyoBalls serious consideration.
MyoBalls come with detailed instructions and guidance on how to use this product for optimal health and pain relief benefits, so you don't have to be a doctor or a fitness expert to experience the difference this form of self-massage can make in your quality of life. Whether you're a chiropractor, a physical therapist, or just an everyday citizen seeking relief from plantar fasciitis, elbow pain, foot pain, leg pain or calf cramps, PrimeKinetix' Myoballs may be just what the doctor ordered.
