Chronic pain sufferer. Best pain relief I've had in over A YEAR!!!
Honestly, this is probably the best purchase I've made in the past year. I've been dealing with chronic back and hip pain for the past year. Long story short I had some fractures, torn cartilage, and some other stuff potentially the "professionals" are still trying to figure out. Well, while they've pumped me full of pills, creams, gels, physical therapy, and a TENS unit, I will confess this has done more for my pain just having the added support than all the rest put together. I'm still not near perfect, but I can walk without wanting to rip my own leg off. If you're dealing with a torn labrum, sciatica, SI joint issues, groin pain, etc. just do yourself a favor and buy this. Hopefully you're finding it sooner than I did.
FYI: It stays in place perfectly fine! I'm a 5' 11" 175lb man with a size 32 waist. I have plenty of slack on both the waist and thigh to loosen or tighten. And I wear this a minimum of 9 hours a day. It also helps with my lower back pain (L4/L5) and SI joint.

This product has been very helpful for me. I'm trying to heal after tearing the cartilage in my hip socket and the support has been good without being restrictive. I was actually surprised at just how much the support has helped. As others noted, it is fully adjustable. I was hesitant to order it at first but after looking at various groin supports I chose this one because the velcro fastened on the outside instead of inside my leg. Thus there is no chafing. The fabric is soft and doesn't catch on dry skin. The added bonus to this design is that I get support for the disc issues I have in my lower back.

Piriformis syndrome/ sciatica relief
5'3"/ 125lbs/ I lift weights and have an athletic body type. Recently, I injured myself with deadlifting, and experienced awful pain in my right butt cheek, followed with sciatic nerve pain from my lower back down to behind my knee. This wrap allowed me to create the adequate tension/pressure I needed & support, so I could drive and sit without experiencing the constant Charlie horse like feeling. 5 stars, If there was more support in the band, that wraps around the back, & if I could get a better fit around my quad. No regrets!

This is a well designed support. I have had burning in my thigh since my hip replacement and had tried a thigh support but it kept slipping down thus not providing the support I needed. Saw this and decided to try it. It has been wonderful. No slipping and gives good support thus helping the burning sensation in my thigh.

So glad I took a chance on this! Great relief for tender thigh and pelvis muscles.
I love this thing! I pulled or over-stretched a few muscles in groin/upper thigh area (adductors) and I've started doing stretches and therapy to fix them and during the day I wear this on whichever side is the most tender that day. It's quality construction and after a few minutes you kinda forget that you're wearing it... except when you notice the discomfort is gone. The neoprene material (at least I think that's what it is) kinda keeps your body heat in and so it warms the muscle and when this wrap is applied correctly and snugly, I notice I have better range of motion and my sore muscles don't bother me as much. I'm not sure how people in the reviews are wearing two at a time (one for each leg) but I see how it could be done. It might be just a little bulky across the tummy/pelvis area.

Solid product, very useful
Had a nagging groin/ hamstring pull. This support did a nice job of keeping pressure and heat on affected area during exercise (tennis). The design, with wraps around thigh and waist, prevents it from slipping down leg when running around. Would recommend highly for those wanting to try a high-thigh wrap.

but in the past couple it has gotten much worse..
I've been prone to hip flexor tears for years, but in the past couple it has gotten much worse...crippling at times. Add on piriformis syndrome, hip weakness and sciatica and it's a big mess. I'm on the road to recovery, but therapy and working out is painful, so often times it didn't happen. This has made the difference I needed! Thank God! It's fully adjustable and comfortable to wear. The neoprene does get hot and a little sweaty, but who cares when you can walk without hobbling? The band provides the stability my hips need, so guess what? No piriformis strain means no inflammation which means no irritation of sciatica. Yay! Now I can focus on the cause of all this...the hip flexor. The leg wrap keeps my flexors in place and allows healing and proper gait. I'm walking more, working out with weights and doing yoga. I feel so much better!

My fiance has had 2 hip replacements and continued to have severe soft tissue pain in that area for years. Narcotics helped some but clouded his mind so he stopped taking them last year and just suffered through the pain. This product has helped him walk without pain for the first time in 7 years. We will be ordering again for sure.

Good once you get it on
Far more difficult to put on than expected almost need 2 people. It wraps well but the Velcro Fromm the bottom will stick to the top when trying to put on which gets frustrating. I found in order to get it to lay smooth against the leg without gaps you need to keep moving it and unlocking it until you get all sides smooth. Once finally on and not bulging it does stay put and you and can walk around without issues or it moving. If you take your time putting it on it will work very well for you

This actually works!!
Amazing product!! I bought this because I have a front and back of the leg pull. The pain sits way up high- in the folds - where they meet the buttocks in the back and the groin up front. This is thick and substantial. But not so much that it interfers with playing tennis. Or with movement.
The strap around the waist keeps it in place. Honestly I thought i was done for the season but this has saved my playing days.
I'm a woman. 5'7" 140lbs. Room for someone bigger.
