What if I feel pain or hurt when I’m on the ball?
The Miracle Ball Method™ book will troubleshoot a lot of difficulties you may have while on the ball. It explains that you don’t place the ball where you have discomfort otherwise you will not be able to utilize the method effectively. Moving the ball a little one way or the other can make all the difference. If this does not help, then perhaps an entirely different ball placement will be more effective.
Don’t place the ball where it hurts. Sometimes it’s better to start with another ball placement, such as the ‘neck on the ball’ or ‘elbow on the ball.’ This way you can get your breathing to improve which will then give you the beginnings of some relief of the excess muscle tension associated with sciatic pain.
