For real. A few years ago, I got in a car accident that left my neck and upper back pretty messed up. With regular (monthly) chiropractic visits, I’ve been able to maintain a relatively pain-free existence with maintenance, but it gets expensive, and who wouldn’t like to live pain-free without regular office visits? When my coworker got an excercise ball to sit on, she let me borrow it for a day, and I was sold. I figured it would just be good for my balance, core strength, and be fun (I thoroughly enjoy bouncing around on it). But I experienced the added benefit of less neck stiffness and pain! I got crazy busy and just couldn’t make a trip to the chiropractor work several months ago, and intended to reschedule when things slowed down, but I have felt so great, I don’t want to monkey with what has been working!
The ball was $20 on Amazon. I am very happy with my choice. My coworker has a different ball and seems equally pleased. I honestly don’t think it matters much, as long as the ball is not a huge pile of junk.
