What makes the Muscle Release Ball (MR Ball) different from other therapy balls?
Many therapy balls are either too large, too small, or simply too hard and unyielding to make them comfortable enough for your body to relax. The soft texture and yielding quality of the MR Ball allows your muscles to let go,releasing compression and contraction in tight muscles and joints. As muscles soften and lengthen, your spine can elongate and this can radically reduce common symptoms of discomfort and back pain.
The MR Ball can be inflated or deflated depending on the specific exercise and the needs of your structure. For therapeutic use, the MR Ball should be at least 50 percent deflated, which creates a flotation device for your pelvis, lower back,or any part of the body resting on it. Because the ball is only partially filled with air, it changes shape as you move to lift and support your body.
