The Miracle Ball Method

A healthy gift for people with back, knee, or leg pain

Why They’ll Love It: When Miracle Ball creator Elaine Petrone suffered a leg injury that ended her dancing career, she was told by doctors that she’d never walk without a limp. Undaunted, Petrone went in search of her own cure and developed the Miracle Ball Method. It consists of two soft grapefruit-size plastic balls and a series of exercises that can gently ease muscle tension and pain in the neck, shoulders, upper and lower back, knees, and legs. For friends or family who are in pain or who are reluctant to try high-impact exercises, the balls may well live up to their name.

Suggested retail price: $18
