EXERCISE EQUIPMENT

Bak balls

BakBalls can immediately relieve your back pain and stiffness. Using BakBalls daily can loosen a stiff and painful spine, accelerate your recovery from back injuries and reduce the chance of your back pain recurring. By exerting localised pressure on stiff joints, BakBalls allow you to safely self-treat your back pain and stiffness.
BakBalls have been designed to match the anatomy of your spine and provide therapeutic force directly onto the most commonly painful regions of the spine. Developed by an Olympic Sports Physiotherapist, Bakballs are unique in their anatomical design, portability and ease of use.
