Does Copper Wear Compression Clothing Really Work Part Two… I Am Having a Tough Time Believing This…

I wrote a post last week about a serious case of tendonitis that I’ve been battling for the last two or three months adding that my wife had purchased a Copper Wear compression sleeve with the hope that it would “help”.

I’ve been wearing the sleeve fairly religiously over the last week and I’ve discontinued the icing while increasing my time on the bike (I put in some serious miles from Friday to Monday).  Today is my most comfortable day in the last two or three months.  I can still feel it, but there’s no doubt that I’m on the mend.  I can’t believe that I’m not hurting.

So, here’s where I come out on this:  I don’t know why it works, I don’t know the science behind copper clothing or whether it’s just the compression that’s improving my arm.  I don’t care either.  Whatever it is, that sleeve works.

Tendonitis is not one of those things that can be cured by hopes and dreams.  It can’t be bargained with or affected by warm-fuzzy feelings. I have done nothing to aid in my recovery, no rest, no more ice. I’ve only worn the Copper Wear sleeve and I’m experiencing pain-free days. My strength in that arm has returned and I don’t have to worry about the shock coming if I have to carry a gallon of milk with my right arm anymore.

Point is, whatever it is about that sleeve, I’m almost healed up and feeling a lot better – without dropping my mileage.

  1. I’m going to have to give this a shot because over the last couple of years I’ve developed a good case of tendonitis in my elbows from my work (floor installer) and aggravating with gym workouts. For the price it’s worth the try because I could use some relief. I’ll have to let you know if I have positive results as well. Stay safe and ride on!
