    A few years back when my pain was more of a deep muscle pain I would use my dog's tennis ball & it it did feel awesome. However, I did'nt use a sock & I would lye on the carpeted floor & place the ball on my lats-sometimes too much pressure & I would hurt myself! I cannot tolerate any type of massage or pressure anymore as my pain feels more like deep bone pain now. Weird how it changes.
