I walk dogs and sometimes I walk as much as 40-50 miles per week in the mountains and much of that is steep up or downhill terrain (impossible when my sciatica flares up!). Due to genetics and my occupation, I have very large calves for my smallish body frame, so I have to adjust it a couple of times to get the most relief and for my body (it works better fitted slightly lower than shown on the image).
All in all, this reduces my pain from a 9 or 10 down to a manageable 3 or 4 INSTANTLY, and sometimes I even put it back on to sleep and I actually SLEEP! My mother is facing spinal surgery because of not responding to nerve blocks and other medical attempts to relieve her pain. I have convinced her to try this brace first, and I look forward to seeing her review on here!
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
