I am an equestrian and an amateur boxer, which means I am always using my core! I have been dealing with chronic pain for a year and am trying to avoid abdominal surgery. I have had great success with the incrediwear ankle sleeve and thought I'd give this a try. I got a S/M (5'3" 128lbs) and it fits perfectly. I do sleep better when I wear it and I even sometimes leave it on to go to work. I have not worked out in it yet mainly because I don't want to get it all sweaty yet! It does wonders for my sore muscles when I am achy after lifting weights or a particularly hard boxing session. For my chronic pain, time will tell. We believe it is a scar tissue issue so incrediwear may not be able to help but I do appreciate being able to sleep better! I was unable to sleep due to pain and now I sleep through the night!
I bought this sleeve at the state fair and I love it. I have a lot of inflammation in my hip and left leg. Since wearing this I can actually walk again with very little or no pain. It has been a Godsend to me.
I am a professional athlete (dressage rider) (horses like you see in the Olympics for those of you non-horsey people). Recovery for me in a timely manner is key and even though I cannot ride while recovering I am on my feet pretty much all day training students, doing everything I can to rehab in the gym and traveling to horse shows etc. I was experiencing tremendous pain/fatigue by mid-day and waking up with spinal headaches (probably due to pushing a bit too much). However a fellow rider recommended the body sleeve and I use the Incrediwear Equine products on my horses and love them so I thought I’d try it. I am so glad I did! My fatigue is far less and pain reduced. The biggest symptom that has gone away though is that when I sleep with it on my headaches are non-existent. It’s comfortable, breathable and stays in place- no constant readjusting. I can not recommend this product enough for pain, fatigue and recovery!!!!
I have been wearing the body sleeve for approximately a month now. I am 5'3" and weigh 130 lbs. and so ordered a S/M. I seems to fit just right. It washes up well (I did not put it in the dryer). It is soft and comfortable. I had a lesion on my lower spine that caused waist down damage. Lesion was healed by steroids. I have been left with damage. One "after affect" is inflamation of my spine and tail bone. The body sleeve does not cover the entire spine but what it does cover has helped reduce the inflammation. I apprecreciate the reduction of pain. I find I cannot wear it after eating. I have a neuropathy in my stomach nerve and the pressure is uncomfortable. The relief I receive during the day helps me keep going. Also, I have been wearing it while I exercise and it is comfortable enough to complete the stretching I require.
