These look like rather handy gadgets to have around.<br>
I soooo wish I could find an ART or Graston person closer than 100 miles to me.<br><br>
It sounds like that good sort of pain that makes things better in the end.<br><br>
Shoulders and feet....<br>
need some work.

I use that site for reference all the time and it has really helped me get to the bottom of my maladies. I have not bought any of the gadgets because I think they are overpriced and I can accomplish the same stuff with a foam roller and a Sof-T baseball.

I have a "Stick" but not the balls and rolly things.<br>
My stick doesn't pack very well in travel suitcases.<br><br>
I didn't look at any of the prices, either. hmm.....

I find a plain old tennis ball works pretty good in much the same way. Easy to pack too. I just have to remember to hide it from the dog.

I have always used foam rollers and balls of various sizes...but I just recently purchased the full TP package (ball, foot baller, quad roller, block, and DVD)...and wow. I have to say that the foot baller and quad roller are amazing...and much more intense than I would have expected. I've noticed a difference already...but it's still early. Will keep fingers crossed it can provide the results I need.

I like the frozen water bottle idea!<br><br>
I use a tennis ball, or occasionally a baseball. They accomplish the same thing at a lot less cost. I only need to keep the balls away from the dog.<br><br>

I've looked at this also - I have been seeing an A.R.T guy for the last couple of months for my shins/calves, and although I think it's been very effective, I would like something at home to work on that and all the other tight spots I get from training. I have a stick and that helps somewhat, but I have a hard time trying to use it on my shoulders!
