A brand new review of the Knee T-Shellz Wrap from an individual who is experiencing pain relief in only 1 week after she started the treatments. Experiencing benefits this soon is a very positive sign for future results as well.
"I purchased the Knee T-Shellz Wrap after sustaining an injury/popping to my knee during an exercise session. After doing some research online, I came across this product, which seemed to address the symptoms I was experiencing. I received the wrap very quickly and immediately started using it."
"While I am not sure if I will ultimately see a complete healing without surgery (my injury is only a week old), I can say that, after using this product for a short amount of time, it absolutely helps alleviate some of the pain that I have been having. It is comfortable and relaxing."
