About a month ago, I received the Hatfield Strap for review and have been testing it ever since.
Here’s what I received:
Essentially the strap is a device to help you stretch to keep you running. It targets the calf and foot and is especially good for people with plantar fasciitis. While I don’t have plantar fasciitis, it’s still good for anyone looking to stretch their legs/feet. My opinion is that by using this to stretch, it helps prevent injuries. While I cannot attest to it fixing injuries, I’ve always found that stretching helps get you back out there running.
Some of us are more prone to running injuries than others for whatever reason – it could be running in less supportive shoes or standing on hard surfaces for long periods of time. The bummer is once you are injured, running must take a back seat until you seek treatment.
