The Zuber Ball can be used to treat and prevent various conditions including plantar fasciitis and fasciosis, sciatica and DVT.
When used regularly, it can improve gait, posture, muscle tone, body alignment, flexibility, mobility, blood circulation and muscular efficiency.
The small bumps on the surface of the ball stimulate the skin and provide relief from inflammation and tightness while the silicon rubber tubing twists around the ankle to prevent the ball from rolling away.
How to use the Zuber Ball (foot):
- In a seated position (on a chair), place the rubber band around the ankle
- The ball should now be in front of the foot
- Twist the band around the ankle once or twice (depending on the size of the foot) to form a figure of 8 shape.
- Bring the foot through the front of the figure 8 shape so that the ball is on the underside of the foot
- Now roll the ball back and forth, from heel to toe for one to two minutes
- You can adjust the pressure by leaning forward (when sitting) or by standing
The Zuber Ball is versatile and the ball or the cord can be used independently - rolling the ball on trigger points around the body and using the cord as a resistance band. Detach the cord as follows.
