BakBalls can immediately reduce your pain and stiffness. You can use BakBalls in your own home or take them to the office, sporting events or in the car to treat back pain and stiffness.
Using BakBalls daily can loosen a stiff and painful spine, accelerate your recovery from back injuries, and reduce the chance of your back pain recurring in the future.
By exerting localised pressure on stiff joints, BakBalls allow you to safely self-treat your joints and muscles for relief. Back Balls also assist in the long term treatment and prevention of back pain and other back-related conditions.
BakBalls have been designed to match the anatomy of your spine and provide therapeutic force directly onto the most commonly painful regions of the spine.
Developed by an Olympic Sports Physiotherapist, backballs are unique in their anatomical design, portability and ease of use.
How to use BakBalls
BakBalls can relieve back pain & stiffness immediately! BakBalls are designed to reverse joint stiffness caused by slouched postures that contribute to back pain.
Step 1. Position BakBalls between your shoulder blades and ensure they are positioned horizontally on either side of your spine. To prevent your shirt getting tangled pull your shirt taut around you before you start.
Step 2. Start by using the BakBalls lying on your bed. Bend your knees up, use a pillow behind your head and keep your arms by your sides to reduce pressure from lying on BakBalls. Don't roll vigorously or quickly on BakBalls.
Step 3. Lie STATIONARY on BakBalls for 15-20 seconds, then roll the balls down your spine 2-3cm and lie still again. Continue until BakBalls are resting in your lower back this should take around 5 minutes. Once your tolerance increases, you can increase the pressure from BakBalls by moving to a carpeted floor.
Step 4. To further increase pressure delivered from BakBalls to your back, remove your pillow and fold your arms across your chest.
Step 5. For maximum pressure you can raise your arms overhead as illustrated right.

Quick delivery - excellent products
Love the bak balls and massage balls - all products exactly as described and high quality. Super quick delivery
Now that's what I call a decent set of balls
I took my delivery of my set of back balls a few weeks ago. When I unpacked them, I wondered how such a small product could help me with my neck and upper spine pain. Amazingly, I am having solid relief, and now they have become incorporated into my yoga program. My yoga teacher, also a physiotherapist, uses them for her own use. I've been thinking of you, and wonder if you would benefit from using the balls; so much better than rolling around on tennis balls. I'll bring the balls and instructions when we meet for lunch. Cheers Jan
