If you have trigger points in your back (those taut bands of muscles that hurt like the dickens), then you're always looking for a way to work them out or ease their pain without running to a massage therapist or begging your spouse to wear out his/her fingers. This ball does the trick nicely. In books on trigger points/myofascial pain, you'll often see tennis balls mentioned, but they're not nearly firm enough. I'd switched to a Kong ball (yes, the dog toy) on recommendation from an online myofascia book, but it has holes on either side which, when you're trying to move the ball around against a wall, cause problems. This is the same density/firmness and works better.
If you haven't tried it, here's what you do: find a nice blank wall in your home. Stand with your back to it, a few inches away, and try to place the ball in the tender area. You may need to sort of roll it around to get it to the right spot. When you find the right spot/trigger point, lean hard into it, and move it back and forth over the spot for AT LEAST A MINUTE! Yes, it might hurt like crazy but doing it for just a few seconds will aggravate rather than relieve the problem. If too painful, ease up on the pressure.
(If you have trouble keeping the ball in place or it falling to the floor, it is recommended you put it inside sock or nylon stocking and then you can hold it in place over your shoulder - but I find I can just hold it in place with my body then catch the ball as I move away from the wall.)
This technique is good for triggers in the upper and lower back and buttocks. I don't find it useful for shoulders or neck - the angle is all wrong. You may need to move your arms to different angles/positions to get the muscles positioned optimal for this kind of work.
Be aware that you are only buying ONE ball. The title says 'Lacrosse Balls" and the yellow pictures 2 balls. I realize this may be to illustrate the front and back but also find it to be a little misleading.
However, when they arrived there was this strong chemically smell that filled the entire room that I had to open the windows. Even my memory foam mattress didn't have such strong smell. They are really sturdy and great at loosening the back and feet muscles, but the smell didn't go away for over a week. It was not just really bad, but also a really strong. When I went to the practice, the moment that I would open my bag, the smell would be felt from a good distance. I had to avoid using it if people were around. Then, I lost it after 2 weeks, but the smell was still there when I lost it. I wish I had a dog, it would definitely find it from that smell...
While a foam roller is good for massaging a large area, they're also fairly soft, and this lacrosse ball is a solid rubber that has enough softness to allow for a little give but hard enough to really dig into those tight knots. It's also a LOT more portable than a giant foam roller and can be used on a lot more areas such as feet and hands that a foam roller can't.
Anyway, I have no idea if it's actually good for playing lacrosse or not. Judging by the other reviews it seems like a lot more people use this for massaging than lacrosse.
