    Comments about Pro-Tec Athletics The Orb Deep Tissue Massage Ball 5" Injury Recovery:

    I am a fan of the trigger point foam roller but was recently on travel without it and needed a substitute. I was looking for a travel version of the grid roller but the store was out. An associate talked me into the orb and I wish I could go back and thank him! Great for general stiffness but also able to get into and isolate smaller areas. Very easy to throw into a suitcase or backpack. Seems durable so far but I've only had it for a month.

        Comments about Pro-Tec Athletics The Orb Deep Tissue Massage Ball 5" Injury Recovery:

        I am a long distance runner and use the foam roller religiously. Unlike the foam roller, the Orb is small enough to concentrate on a specific area like the knots in the calves, quads, and hamstrings, and really works on rolling on the IT band. Since I am currently training for a marathon, I have some tender spots that need extra TLC and the Orb works perfectly. I asked for this from Santa and he came through!!! Glad he listened!!

            Comments about Pro-Tec Athletics The Orb Deep Tissue Massage Ball 5" Injury Recovery:

            This tool is a must have for anyone who exercises regularly. It really isolates tissues moreso than a foam roller. Works well for hip flexors, quads, piriformis, hamstrings, IT band and calf. Pretty much anywhere you feel tight it will help to loosen the tissue.

              Comments about Pro-Tec Athletics The Orb Deep Tissue Massage Ball 5" Injury Recovery:

              The ball combines all the advantages of a tennis ball with all the advantages of a foam roller. Because it's bigger than a tennis ball, it massages larger areas, and allows a broader range of pressures. It does everything a foam roller does, but also allows massage in all directions instead of being limited to back and forth with a roller.

                Comments about Pro-Tec Athletics The Orb Deep Tissue Massage Ball 5" Injury Recovery:

                I have a variety of objects to roll on (croquet balls, lacrosse balls, softballs, rumble roller, foam roller etc.) and this one is by far the best! Croquet balls are great but a bit smaller and really slippery. The size of the orb and the tacky grip make it perfect for hips and hamstrings. It's great on shoulders and low back too.
