The Ma Roller/pair of socks or gloves helps loosen facet joints that have become thickened and immobile through the inflammatory process. The facets are situated approximately 1.5 cm out from the spinous processes, which are the central knobs you can see through the skin running down the back. Pressure on the socks applies deep pressure to the highly-wired facet joint capsules as they are each targeted in turn. The problem ones (there may be several) will immediately feel obvious as a shriller pain (it feels deliciously moreish - and satisfying - that you are doing something so simple and effective yourself!
Take your time to get it right. There's no hurry here. Moving the socks minutely to make the slightest adjustment often gets it just right - but you may have to have several goes. The socks fit in snugly beside the central bony prominences where the tissues may feel thickened and leathery. Once you've got the socks positioned, bring one knee up and then the other, cross the ankles and then rock the legs gently, the socks exerting pressure on/piercing the joint. If you're getting it right, you will feel that sweet pain of the problem joint being pummelled. It will feel so good you will hardly be able to tear yourself away but keep it to a minute on each joint and only 3 times a week. Ideally, use the pair of socks before using the BackBlock.
