Once you feel better keep up with the ball a few times a week.
In fact at a recent visit to my physio, I was told to lie on a tennis ball for 5 mins a day, which in truth is rather uncomfortable. I will try your suggestion an see if it works out better.
Actually using the advice I have been given so far on this post I have felt a big improvement.
So thank you all
