5.0 out of 5 stars Great for MS sufferers 26 July 2011
By Patsy D
Colour Name:Blue|Size Name:9cm
I bought this for my daughter, who suffers with MS, on the recommendation of her physio. She rolls it in her hands and underneath the soles of her feet, and she says the sensation/feeling is very very good, as it relieves some of the numbness. She would recommend to anybody with MS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pilates balls 1 Mar 2011
Colour Name:Blue|Size Name:9cm
These spikey massage balls are very similar to those used in my Pilates class if a little firmer;because they are new no doubt. They are excellent for relieving tension in the shoulders & back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product 10 Dec 2011
Colour Name:Purple|Size Name:7cm
Bought this having borrowed a friend's one and got good results. This is the 7cm rather than the 9cm version borrowed, which was because I wanted to be able to target areas more precisely.
Previously used old tennis ball to roll under body and apply pressure to target muscles. This massage ball is more solid (ie harder) than a tennis ball and the spikes mean even more pinpoint pressure.
It gets used by all the family...

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for Plantar fasciitis 20 Jan 2012
By doris

Perfect for Plantar fasciitis

This ball is great for tendon stretching and foot massage as recommended in the treatment of plantar fasciitis. Some of these porcupine balls are too soft but this one is just right. You should take expert advice first but there are examples of how to use it [and the feet] on You Tube. Look up: 'Plantar fasciitis protocol' then scroll for 'ball rolls and pick up exercises'.

I found it far less painful, and more effective than trying to stretch the tendon on a hard rolling pin or frozen drinks can wrapped in a towel [standard advice]. It is also possible to do the required massage at the same time as tendon stretching because the Pilates ball 'gives' and really works the tendon at the right pressure.It was impossible to get the right angle and the right amount of physio just using thumbs and such a hassle to do the beneficial amount of physio without the porcupine ball.

I keep one on the floor by the sink so that it is there, ready to use at several times throughout the day. Great product.

Note: This treatment alone won't be enough to treat plantar fasciitis but it sure helps. You may also need to stretch tendons along the whole length of the back of the leg, especially calf muscles. You can use the ball to roll under the calf muscles too and in combination with other gentle, calf muscle stretching exercises.

Whilst not being a cure by any means .... after failing to find a medication (naproxen and diclophenic) that had any effect on my pain, this ball is in real terms 100% more effective, it can stand a lot of pressure ....up to standing on it.

It goes so deep with the spiky balls, if massages perfectly when sitting on a chair for example, this basically provides a relaxtion and almost numbing of the pain in some cases, be aware it is possible to overdo it with this ball and you will feel a bit of pain the next day, as with a really good massage, however its not worse than the plantar pain itself.

Be aware this will not cure plantar faciitus in my experience .. ive tried a number of avenues, including getting the gf to massage it a lot, but for instant relief that will get you through a couple of hours .. its hard to beat !!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 9 Nov 2012
Colour Name:Purple| Size Name:7cm|Verified Purchase
I love my spikey massage ball, so when I left the last one in a hotel in Italy I was devastated! Luckily I easily found and reordered this one. It's a perfect massage ball and is small enought to carry around with you!

5.0 out of 5 stars good for massaging sore feet 23 Jun 2012
By Pazza
Colour Name:Purple| Size Name:7cm|Verified Purchase
I bought this as I suffer a lot from tired sore feet. It does help quite a bit and the spikes have just the right amount of firmness.
It also works quite well for back and shoulder stiffness when placed between ones back and the wall and moving from side to side and up and down. Good value for money.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good purchase 9 Mar 2014
Colour Name:Blue| Size Name:9cm|Verified Purchase
I bought this spikey ball to have a spare one in another location as I find them so useful. They are excellent for unknotting my shoulders in particular. The only reason I gave it 4 stars rather than 5 is that the spikes are longer than my original ball. This means it is less comfortable to use but no more effective.
The delivery was really quick & I would use this company again.
