I have now had two experiences with the Recovery Wrap and both have exceeded my expectations. Frankly, I was skeptical that it could deal with the two issues I had. First, I had knee pain for about 20 years and had to stop running because of it. (I had lost cartilage in my left knee from years of running.) After two applications of the wrap and a couple of months rest, I was able to begin running again and worked my way up to 48 minutes without pain. I can now use the elliptical trainer and bike at the gym as well. Recently I was diagnosed with a stress fracture of the ankle. I gave it three weeks of PT, ice and support with little improvement. I used the wrap once and felt immediate relief. I don’t know how or why it works, but my personal experience with it convinces me that work it does.
