It improved my hamstring quickly. Worked better than advertised!

I have to say I was a skeptic of your product. During my younger days when I use to cage fight I severely injured my groin to the level of unable to walk or even when I would try to get out of bed I basically had to roll out of bed, and it took 3 months to even ride a bike.This time I injured my groin surfing the north shore of Hawaii and it was worse than the first time. This time I had five inch long to a little over one inch wide bruising on inside of my leg and a pull up toward my lower abdomen which I thought it was a hernia on top of the groin pull. So needless to say I was desperate and wanted to heal correctly and as fast as I could. I found your website and I said to myself I have nothing to lose. With your product, icing, Ibuprofen thirteen days later, I am doing laps in a pool. I cant wait till next week to be able to bike swim and surf. The term R.I.C.E. should be changed to rest,ice, and chi.

Hello. I am a 49 year old male, avid runner, both on the road and trail runner. At the end of a particularly active month of running, totaled 56 miles after back to back events on consecutive weekends the last week of the month. (normally run 30-35 miles a week). This led to the development of a significant shin splint, causing substantial pain and decreased mobility on subsequent training runs. Using compression while running, ice and elevation afterward, condition worsened. Found Qivantage doing an internet search for shin splints. Applied recovery paste and left it on for two days. The third day, went for an easy 5 mile run, with noticeably decreased symptoms. Used a second application that evening, after 24 hrs, went running and had a hard time in distinguishing the leg which had the shin splint from the leg which did not. During previous occasions of experiencing shin splints, i have had to endure up to 6-8 weeks of rather tedious recovery, experimenting with various regimens of rest, ice, compression, activity, etc. Has proven to be a difficult injury, from which to find an appropriate regimen to begin healing, let alone to recover from completely. Qivantage offered an amazingly simple, extremely effective, and very fast means of recovering from what can become a chronic, debilitating injury. Thanks very much for providing such an amazing product. Would recommend to anyone with lower leg (shin splint, calf strain) injuries.
It worked so well… Also I have 3 herniated discs in my neck. I also used the recovery wrap on my neck and it did help reduce the pain. My neck condition is chronic and I had neck surgery 18 years ago and this has helped me reduce my pain level.

It is rare when you come across a web company or any company for that matter that has great customer service but QiVantage is super responsive and know what they are talking about. Great company. I tell all my friend in the horse world about you guys.

In 2004, running sprints with my sons track team, I pull a hamstring muscle. In 2009, I started doing sprint triathlons and re-agrivated it. I couldn’t get it healed through the 2009 or 2010 season. In the winter of 2010, I found QiVantage on the internet. I had tried every other pain relief product, (Ben Gay, Icy Hot, Ibuprofen, Blue Goo, and pain patches) nothing healed the hamstring. Within a week of trying the recovery series, especially the wrap, the injury was gone. Here it is late March, I just finished running a 80 min workout getting ready for a 1/2 IM.
Guys, much to my surprise, I have to admit that your product performed very well and reduced my swelling dramatically. I was looking to rehab a torn calf quickly to participate in town league softball playoffs. I’m 49 years old and have played in this league for 22 consecutive years. Unfortunately, I re-tore the calf in a sprint down the first base line. But I was grateful to get in 2 1/2 games that I otherwise would not have likely played in. I was quite impressed with the results and would use your product again – though I find it to be a bit pricey.
Easy to use and it worked beyond my expectations. He was told it would be 4 weeks until he could stand due to his calliopes tear but he was up and walking in 16 days – 8 days after first use of the product.

Well, my first usage of the recovery wrap was great. I had and still have some pain in my illiacus muscle/groin area, but much improved. This product erased the pain significantly. Even my limp is fading. I should have mentioned first of all that I’m suffering from two aliments, the groin area and have been told from a MRI scan that I have severe arthritis in the hip joint area from an injury incurred years ago, as why now I think I’m feeling the majority of pain these days, Thanks to the recovery wrap which help to alleviate pain from the illiacus muscle area.
I have had a recurring Achilles injury for years which usually takes weeks of rest to heal. However, with one application of the Athletic Wrap my Achilles felt better within a few days. And I was back to training 100% in no time. In addition, I use the Foot Energy after hard workouts so my legs feel fresh for the next training session the following day.
