Rated 4 out of 5 by bige9999 Works well on pulled hamstring
Did a great job keeping pressure on my hamstring allowing me to play basketball and ultimate while I healed. It does try to slide down some while I run, so this was a little frustrating, but expected.

This product was recommended to help with the healing of my stage 2 quadracep tear. I measured carefully as instructed. The Dick's Sporting Goods rep was outstanding. Even though I made certain I had it on correctly, the Shock Doctor quad compression device fell down to my ankle when I walked. I had to repeatedly pull it up where it needed to be then it would fall to my calf, then to my ankle. Dick's is a good store, however my $27+/- was wasted with this product. I really don't think it's worth the time and effort as well as the gasoline to try to return this item after about 90 minutes usage. If you would care to refund my purchase price I would be happy to return this item. My quad still hurts like Hades.

Thigh groin sleeve alleviates pressure in groin area and does not slip while active.
Provides warmth during racquetball and helps with strains.
Would recommend this product to prevent injuries and, if injured, to help healing process.

Rated 2 out of 5 by DM99 Works so so
I was hoping this product would work better while playing or just walking around. It tends to slide down which defeats its purpose. If wearing it while sitting around and doing very little walking it is ok.

I bought this for my daughter who plays competitive softball. She was having issues with her quad, and was having trouble running without pain. She started wearing this during practice and games, and is no longer having any pain. She will continue to wear the Shock Doctor every time she goes out on the field to eliminate (hopefully) re-injury. Well worth the money. It has already paid for itself as we haven't had to visit the doctor.

I bought this after a bike wreck left me with a hematoma this size of a melon on my left hip. Couldn't run because the hematoma would move and hurt like the devil. Put this sucker on and no movement, able to continue to train. Wouldn't be able to do contact sports yet, but can do almost anything else without pain. It is very tight and isn't exactly something you don't notice you're wearing, but it keeps me moving despite the weeks it will take for that hematoma to go away. I'm thinking this would also be good for minor muscle pulls, but that would depend also on what sport you're trying to play. I tried compression shorts and pants prior to buying this but they didn't provide enough support for me to run. I am a medical professional and did have my injury checked prior to using this to work through something that would otherwise have been quite painful, please don't use this unless you know why you are having pain and know it's ok to use a support to get through it. Oh yeah, also don't think that you can pull this on then adjust it a few minutes later. It has to be peeled off adfter only a few minutes and pulling it up higher after you've had it on for more than a minute it quite difficult.

Very good quality product. Does its job and has helped me recover from a pulled hamstring. Maintains even pressure and support while remaining in place. Very breathable material makes it comfortable to wear. Only real recommendation would be to try it on before you buy. My measurement called for an XL, but I found the M to fit best.

Shock Dr thigh/groin sleeve was purchased due to an injury my son had. It has worked great, giving the support/ pressure needed.
