Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great tool to help Plantar Faciitis After spending months and a lot of money at the Podiatrist with no success, I am finally starting to see results on my own using 2 simple and inexpensive techniques: 1st, I started taping my foot with Kenisiology tape. This provides a little support throughout the day but by itself won't fix the problem. 2nd, and what I think has provided the most relief, is the use of these deep tissue massage balls. I bought two them and keep one at my desk at work and one by my bed. I roll my food over it with as much pressure as I can stand for 3 minutes 3-4 times a day and in the morning and before I go to bed. It hurt a lot the first week of doing this but now my foot is getting used to it and my pain is nearly gone! It's worth a try if you haven't given this method a go. Plus, you aren't spending a ton of money for someone else to give you a deep tissue massage. Not to mention that these things just feel good no matter where you use them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow!! This is awesome! I just purchased this in Boulder CO last week while I was on a hiking/skiing trip. I've had plantar fasciitis on my right heel for over a year with no relief and I've tried tennis balls ect. I stumbled across this gem after discussing it with a staff member there and he recommended it. The first time in over a year I've had any relief from the pain. I'm going to by another and keeps at my office. Best is to soak your foot in warm water then use the ball, almost immediate relief! Thank you REI!

1. Does the ball need to be inflated with a pump? 2.If so, do you sell said pump? 3. Is the ball firm- so that I can stand on it?

Asked by: ChrisJorgen
No, the ball does not need to be blown up. The ball is very firm, it would probably hurt if you put all your weight on it.
