Ever heard of Tommie Copper? This is a company that has taken the benefits of compression wear products and integrated them with the element of copper.
Compression is often a form of support for an injury, stabilizing the injury site and providing some stability to the area. A knee brace, ankle brace, wrist brace, ankle brace etc. all serve this purpose.
Copper is a necessary trace element needed by the human body to support a host of functions, such as: the formation of red blood cells, the absorption and utilization of iron, the metabolism of cholesterol and glucose, and more. Copper is known to stimulate the immune system to fight infections, promote healing, and repair injured tissues.
If the compression sleeve isn't comfortable, chances are you won't wear it long. I know several people who use Tommie Copper Products and like them enough to wear them!
If you are nursing an old injury or even a new one, this may be just what the doctor ordered.
