Whether you are getting ready for game day or stretching after practice, every athlete needs a set of lacrosse balls. Lacrosse balls are made with premium rubber that’s dense. Lacrosse balls won’t soften under pressure, unlike other sports balls or massage balls. These will also last longer, be more accurate, and not grease up! Our lacrosse balls meet all NOCSAE®, NCAA®, NFHS® and SEI standards, so they can be used in lacrosse games on game day. However, many athletes and other individuals use lacrosse balls to relieve muscle tension and pain. After practice or strenuous activities, muscles may become tight or sore. While many people turn to massage rollers, foam rollers, scraping tools, or other massage instruments, we recommend a simple solution: a lacrosse ball. Because lacrosse balls are hard and don’t soften over time, they make great myofascial massagers. Fascia refers to the thin sheath of connective tissue that covers all muscles and organs. Tight fascia can increase strain on muscles and joints and can be extremely uncomfortable and painful. It can even pull the body out of alignment. Myofascial therapy massages can loosen and stretch the fascia to restore mobility and free movement. Myofascial massages are best when performed after a workout, but they can be done throughout the day as well. And it only takes a few minutes! The main objective when using a lacrosse ball for these massages is to apply firm pressure to various regions of the body—neck, arms, glutes, back, shoulders, feet, etc. Many lacrosse ball massages can be performed by placing the ball between the area of the body and a flat surface (like the wall or floor). By shifting your weight and rolling the ball around your muscles, you can release tight fascia. Get this 2-pack of lacrosse balls today to start relieving tension or to up your game.
