Myostorm Meteor Mini Ball
Myostorm Meteor Mini Ball
The Meteor mini ball is our #1 recommended soft tissue recovery aid for those suffering with a plantar fascia, arch, or other soft tissue malady. It provides 4 levels of research backed vibration with on board heat. Heat and vibration together are a potent combination for healing and recovery.
The Meteor Mini was developed by researchers, health practitioners, engineers and professional athletes. The Meteor is designed to facilitate muscular recovery and help reduce chronic pain.
Since chronic plantar fasciitis is actually plantar fasciosis—meaning it is degenerative tissue and there is NOT inflammation—heat and vibration are critical and icing alone should be avoided.
For these reasons, we feel the Mystorm Meteor mini ball is the best recovery and soft tissue therapy product on the market, and we think every household should own one!
Dr. Gabe Mirkin, who invented the RICE protocol and originally made icing popular, has been on a crusade to encourage people to stop icing in most situations. Heat and vibration are now recommended in place of ice.
The meteor ball is also excellent for reducing post-exercise soreness, with research showing that it can reduce muscle soreness and stiffness by up to 50%.
What Does MyoStorm's Ultra-Soothe Vibration do for your body?
Do you remember the last time you bumped your head? Your first reaction was probably to start rubbing the spot that you bumped. That's because stimulating the mechanoreceptors in your skin helps block pain signals and provides a soothing effect! Vibration therapy (at the right frequencies and amplitudes) can produce the same effect but significantly amplified. This phenomena is called "Gate Control Theory".
The vibration from the Meteor is perfectly calibrated to help reduce pain with lasting effects.
Blood Flow Pre vs. Post Vibration
Increase Blood Flow
The specifically calibrated levels of vibration of the Meteor have been shown to promote blood flow. Increasing blood flow not only helps to relax and soothe muscles, but it helps accelerate recovery.
When used as a warm up tool prior to physical activity, the Meteor helps improve athletic performance as well as reduce the risk of injury.
Reduce Muscle Stiffness
In addition to stimulating the nerves in your skin, vibration at the right frequencies can also stimulate your bodies central nervous system. This helps "wake up" your bodies natural healing process, speeding up recovery and relaxing your muscles. This is the same reason that cat purrs and monks saying "oms" is therapeutic... both create vibrations that stimulate our central nervous system!
The Meteor has been shown to reduce muscle stiffness by 50% in only 30 seconds of use.
