Compression Sleeve
« on: January 06, 2017, 07:48:36 PM »
I've heard from people who are uneducated about the use of compression sleeves.  If your someone who "hates" them continue reading, educate yourself, and leave others alone.

For those of you who see these as a simple fashion statement you may want to read about compression and athletics.

There are undoubtedly a segment who wear them as a fashion statement and that completely fine as it's their money and their choice. Do you pay there bills?  I doubt it and as such you should crawl back under your rock, grab a Busch beer, and complain about your pathetic life which causes you to judge others. I'm sure there are many things wrong with you that cause you to see us that use them as "losers".

I was intoduced to compression while serving in the Army where I lifted weights on a schedule of twice a day.

What does compression do?  It keeps the muscles compressed warm, allows the muscles to be oxygenated better then if not compressed, tightens ligaments and deters injury, and allows a shorter recovery time after use. They are used in nearly all sports, for people with Cancer, people with diabetes, people who fly a lot. The uses are numerous.

Do you consider fighter pilots losers?  Well If you haven't figured it out......they use compression to keep blood to their heads at high G's.

Now I am fully aware that bowling is not the same as flying a fighter jet. I do know that it's athletic sport that can and does cause injury. If I can prevent even one injury with it then it's worth MY money.

Have a nice day.

Study after study... A lot of proven technology has studies done showing different results. Most of these studies you mentioned were done in labs - NOT real world applications. The real world tests prove the science works. Believe what you will though.



You really need to work on your wording.  This statement literally says that the science doesn't work in the labs, but somehow magically does in the real world, which is ridiculous on the face of it.

In the real world, we read the advertising telling us how well something will work for us, we hear paid professionals telling us it will help or friends tell us how it helped them.  Probably not in the lab.  :)

Placebo effect?

It still comes down to, if you think it is helping you, then fine, continue to use it and recommend it to others.  Just don't call others who don't believe it is helpful or who say it does not work for them, 'ignorant'.
