Foot massage balls are a cheap, natural, effective massage tool that can provide temporary comfort and pain relief from plantar fasciitis.
Pressure from your ball distracts the pain receptors of the brain, meaning that the targeted pressure to the fascia, foot, and heel temporarily relieves pain.
Massaging your feet sends blood flow to the affected area, and breaks down painful adhesions (improperly healed tears) on the plantar fascia ligament.
Massage balls activate trigger points in the heel and foot, which helps relax these stressed areas.
