I love using tennis balls for self-massage! It's not only easy & inexpensive...it's incredibly effective!
While massage alone generally will not not fix the underlying problem causing a muscle to be tight or painful, it can still be a very important part of the recovery and healing process. Massage can temporarily relieve tight muscles and decrease pain, but it also improves blood flow to the area and helps promote healing.
