I run about 3 days a week. I also enter 3 or more 5K runs a year. Thermacare knee wrap is perfect for my knee recovery from 5K marathons. Also, sometimes I overdue more than my knee can candle on my weekly runs, and I prefer to use the wrap over oral over-the-counter pain medicine because it works immediately to relieve my muscle pain or soreness and is overall more effective in the long run because I don't have to take any medication, which was what I previously did, until the thermacare wraps! Inexpensive, love them, and would definitely recommend as I already have!
