Foam rollers have traditionally taken the place of manual therapists, but they are bulky and really not specific enough especially around awkwardly shaped body parts, for example the shoulders, chest, or glutes.
This led us to develop the Sports Medica lacrosse ball. It is the ultimate all-in-one tool when it comes to fixing posture. We developed the lacrosse ball to have a tiny bit of compression. This makes it comfortable enough to use, and firm enough to make lasting changes. The lacrosse ball is also rubberised meaning that it does not slip off skin or clothes especially under the foot, glutes, or TFL, which has always been a problem with tennis balls.
Be Your Own Physio
The lacrosse ball is more valuable than any foam roller. It allows you to be more specific when targeting certain areas for trigger point therapy, including the hamstrings, pectorals, rotator cuffs, occipitals (base of the head) and the TFL (tensor fascia latae).
The lacrosse ball is both simple and extremely versatile. It can be used to loosen muscles, whilst being firm enough to promote blood flow to specific muscles, improving stretch reflexes and lymphatic drainage.
What The Professionals Use
The lacrosse ball has become a go-to product for physios, professional athletes (including Olympians) and CEO’s that travel a lot. Due to its size, it’s far more convenient than a traditional foam roller.
The lacrosse ball is the ultimate all-in-one tool when it comes to fixing posture. The pectorals and TFL are the muscles that become the tightest and are the most common causes of poor posture. A lacrosse ball is the easiest and most effective way of loosening these problem muscles.
