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.
