Help My Foot, as the name implies, is a product specifically designed for self-massage of your feet to relieve tension in the body’s tissue (fascia), giving you improved flexibility and stability in movement. All the vertical and horizontal muscle structures begin in our extremities and any movement restrictions in the foot, for example, can lead to movement restrictions elsewhere in the body, even as far up as the neck.
What the B4 Play Ball can assist in treating
Plantar fasciitis is an injury of the plantar fascia and is responsible for 80% of all heel pain cases. The condition tends to occur mostly in women, military recruits, the obese, athletes and various other sportsmen. Plantar fasciitis is estimated to affect 1 in 10 people at some point during their lifetime and mostly between the ages of 40-60 years. The pain is usually extreme after sleep and is felt once weight is placed on the foot.
Deep Vein Thrombosis
DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) is a blood clot in a vein deep inside the body and usually in the leg veins. If the clot breaks away and travels through the bloodstream, it could block a blood vessel in the lungs and be fatal.
It is essential to exercise during long haul flights – so pack the ball in your bag and roll under each foot for a few minutes and it will help prevent DVT.
If you are overweight, inactive, pregnant, have varicose veins, roll the B4 Play Ball to massage the feet first thing in the morning to assist with blood circulation.Please consult your physician first before use
Sciatic Nerve Pain or Sciatica is a fairly common pain in the lower back and leg. Most practitioners will give a deep massage in the glute area (large bum muscle) which is very painful.
Be your own practitioner – Detach the cord by pulling the section of it through the ball to expose the joint. Seperate the two ends by pulling one off the small dowel stick and then through the ball, leaving it seperate from the cord. Use as is.
The B4 Play Ball can also be used for any tight muscles like the IT band, calf and back muscles.
