The First Trick
The Second Trick
The Third Trick
The Fourth Trick
The Fifth Trick

In the end there is a lot you can do with a ball. What I’ve covered are spine specific approaches to managing spinal joint dysfunction issues.

Here I will share what occurs without any conscious effort but is instead a by-product of just doing work on the ball. It hints at the power of the ball and illustrates how much is going on behind the “scenes.”

The first time I played on the ball it was positioned between two adjusting tables and I was just fiddling around. I did end up falling over backward though, and had to catch myself on a table. And I remember being vaguely couscious of how tough it was just to stay in control… lifting my feet and keeping my balance was not even a consideration.

Six months later after doing the ball tricks I have shared here, I just decided to lift my feet. It was easy, and has been every since, to stay balanced while keeping both feet off the floor.

So, developing that kind of balance comes naturally as you do what you do on the ball. That says a lot about the neuro-musculo-skeletal coordination that is orchestrated on your behalf.

As a 6th Ball Trick, just sit there balancing for a while. You will get a sense of how much is going on. It is very good spine work, and it’s fun!

  3. When you are physically fit, active and healthy, you become self-confident and sense enthusiasm in your life. You can even better cope with mental illnesses such as stress, anxiety, and depression.
