Tumble dryer balls!' Read on if interested!

Morning all, been sometime since I have posted but I want to share a discovery with you!

For quite some time I was gradually getting more and more pain in my hands ( picking up money like 5 pence piece was a nightmare

Someone suggested that I buy some tennis balls and squeezed them , tried this but proper tennis balls do not squash either that or I am weaker than I thought

Then one day looking around on the web I saw a picture of a hand and it showed all the areas of the hand that corresponde with the body

( for example the spine ( backbone area is from your outer little finger down to the wrist)

Then for dome strange reason I thought that tumble dryer balls may be better than tennis balls because of all the little nodules

Three times a day for about 10 mins I roll one around between my hands and I must say the pain does feel less ( not gone completely as it is not a miracle cure)

But I can now puck up 5 pences after a month doing this religiously

I have started putting the balls under each foot now as I have a lot of foot pain , so I will let you know if that helps the feet pain

After I give it a couple more weeks!!

  • P.s sorry about the couple of spelling typos!!

  • On the previous post I put a wrong bit of info, it is not the outer little finger to the wrist that is the spine , it is actually from the thumb to the wrist!!! Sorry must be fibro fog!!!

  • Sorry I gave you some wrong info, it is not the little finger to the wrist, it is infact the thumb to the wrist that corresponds to the backbone ( must be fibro fog)

  • That sounds great, anything that can reduce the pain - even if only for a while is always good to hear about.

  • I'll have to try this my hands and feet are agony. Thanks

  • worth a try keep us posted.thanks

  • That is quite interesting thank you for sharing I shall have to have a think about trying this as I am having some issues with my hands when picking things up.

    Take care


  • Morning what an excellent tip so we all need tumble balls for hand exercise well easier to take about the the piano I use to keep my fingers moving. Though you dont need a piano you can practise the movements on a table or a book any thing really :)
