Works for Me: "Self Massage" for Back Pain
I have a great way to work out knots and sore spots in my back. I put a tennis ball in a long sock and stand with my back against a wall. Holding on to the end of the sock, I position the ball over painful areas, then lean against the wall and move slightly so the ball massages the area. I can position the ball anywhere and control the pressure I apply. It may not be as good as a massage, but I can do it anytime, and it really works. — V.W., Laguna Beach, CA
Brilliant idea! In a similar vein, you can relieve foot cramps by rolling your feet over a golf ball. — JW
