FAQ's

  • Who is the KNUKLBALL for?
    • The KNUKLBALL is for everyone. Self-care is important whether you are an elite athlete, working through an injury, or just someone trying to get through their daily routine.
  • What does the KNUKLBALL do?
    • The KNUKLBALL is a massage tool designed to target, trap, and isolate problematic areas for more effective relief of trigger points, muscle stiffness, and pain associated with poor muscle tissue quality.
  • What are trigger points?
    • Knots or lumps in muscle tissue. Tight or tender spots in muscle tissue
  • Why should I be concerned?
    • Trigger points cause pain, stiffness, limit normal function/performance, decrease range of motion, and negatively affect quality of life.
    • Can increase risk of injury (poor muscle tissue quality, negatively affect circulation, impair mobility).
  • What causes trigger points?
    • Overuse/overtraining, repetitive stress movements, injury, poor posture/alignment, trauma/scar tissue, poor conditioning, muscle imbalances, stress, anxiety.
    • Muscle fibers that form knots or adhesions (stick together).
  • How are trigger points treated?
    • Through locating (touch) and applying pressure to the site of the trigger point.
  • How do I use the KNUKLBALL?
    • Position your body against the KNUKLBALL as it is placed against the wall or floor within the area of interest (pain).
    • Slowly roll against the KNUKLBALL to specifically locate the problematic area; it should feel tender, painful, tight, or achy.
    • Pause motion and increase pressure; compression of the muscle tissue inhibits blood flow to the area (this interrupts the active state of the trigger point).
    • Maintain position and pressure for approximately 30 seconds; you may increase pressure as needed.
    • Release pressure to re-establish normal blood flow to the area (release trigger point).
    • Repeat if necessary or move on to another area (should start to feel relief).
  • Where do I use the KNUKLBALL?
    • Use the KNUKLBALL on different muscles of the body whenever you need relief!
  • Is the KNUKLBALL firm?
    • The red material is firm like a lacrosse ball. The knuckles are semi-pliable and naturally shaped for comfort, yet highly effective.
  • Will I be sore after using the KNUKLBALL?
    • The KNUKLBALL is very effective at getting deeper into the muscle tissue, so it is a possibility. The area of the body and how aggressive the application is are some of the determining factors.
  • Will it leave any marks or bruising?
    • It depends on many factors (intensity, sensitivity, hydration, etc.), but any marks on the skin or bruising should subside, especially as you become more accustomed to the therapy.
  • What makes the KNUKLBALL so effective?
    • The strategically positioned knuckles, along with their specific height and natural shape make the KNUKLBALL a uniquely effective tool for targeting and relieving tight muscles and trigger points.
  • What material is the KNUKLBALL made of?
    • The KNUKLBALL is made of resilient, easy-to-clean rubber, so it should last for a long time with minimal care.
  • Where is the KNUKLBALL manufactured?
    • The KNUKLBALL is manufactured in the USA.
  • Are there other KNUKLBALL products?
    • There are other KNUKLBALL products in various stages of development. We hope to bring those to market soon, but in the meantime, we are excited to offer you our first product!
