Can SocksLane Elbow Compression Sleeve Relieve Tennis Elbow or Golfer's Elbow?
HOW DOES COMPRESSION WORK ON THE BODY?
The muscles in our body function best when they are continually and efficiently oxygenated, which happens when oxygenated blood is pumped from the heart to the body and back again. The circulatory system channels blood forward and never in the other direction; valves in the body's veins keep the blood pumping in that direction, everywhere we have veins -- even in parts where the valves would have to fight gravity, like our legs. This usually works fine, but sometimes faces challenges and strain through tasks and activities that stress the valves out because of unfavorable conditions like having to stand or sit for long periods, or repetitive motions that can result in overuse injuries. When the valves get weaker, blood can begin to pool in the veins, causing problems.
Pressing tightly on the limbs that contain these blood vessels can encourage the blood to keep flowing properly, avoiding blood pooling or gathering due to venous insufficiency. This is why compression garments have always been popular as prescribed by doctors, although the current wave of popularity has gone quite a ways beyond simply being used by older patients.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF COMPRESSION?
Compression garments like elbow and knee sleeves can help ensure the appropriate amount of circulation and blood flow in the veins, allowing you to avoid problems like venous insufficiency or deep vein thrombosis.
The restoration of effective circulation can also help bring down inflammation and reduce pain in injured or affected limbs. This can be particularly helpful if you're recovering from a knee or elbow injury -- recovering joints can be helped out quite a bit by compression, which restores the proper flow of oxygenated blood as the joint heals. While studies are inconclusive on their final effectiveness in this regard, compression sleeves have been pointed to by athletes as helping them feel that their recovery time was reduced or improved.
WHO NEEDS COMPRESSION ELBOW SLEEVES?
Strained elbows are more common than you might think. The name "tennis elbow" for the old overuse injury is not a strict label, as repetitive motion can result in overuse no matter what sport the user plays -- or if the ser has never even seen a tennis court in his life. Jobs that require lots of lifting or other work with the arms can result in elbow strain. As such, whether you're an athlete, a teacher, or a stockroom worker, you are susceptible to overuse injuries or simply a strained elbow. For instance, those suffering from tendinitis, or an inflammation in the tendons in the joints, can experience pain that ranges from occasional to nagging to constant, which in turn can drastically reduce the range of motion available as using the full range of motion triggers pain.
There's also arthritis, whose inflammation can be impossible to ignore as it can cause considerable discomfort in the affected joints. While there is medication for this, compression is generally a good additional remedy, as it keeps the affected joint tightly wrapped and safe from being banged around.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF SOCKLANE COTTON COMPRESSION ELBOW SLEEVES?
NATURALLY ANTI-ALLERGIC MATERIAL.
Natural cotton and anti-allergic materials like Lycra and Spandex go into making SocksLane compression elbow sleeves, which is a great boon considering these sleeves are typically worn directly on the skin for most of the day, and under other garments. Other sleeves might use synthetic fibers that can irritate the skin or trigger allergies.
SUPPORT FOR THE ELBOW.
A good compression elbow sleeve doesn't just wrap tightly around the elbow, but provides adequate support for it. This is how a good sleeve helps injured elbows recover, or reduces the likelihood of injuries being sustained by an elbow that does a lot of work. Whether it's for sports, for the job, or for daily chores around the house, our arms have a lot of work to literally carry all day, and so adequate support that can stave off trauma and strain is vital. It's also great for people recovering from bursitis, tendinitis, and arthritis.
GOOD FOR USERS OF ALL AGES.
SocksLane compression elbow sleeves are supportive but non-binding, and provide good support and compression for users from all ages and fitness levels.
RELIEF AND PROTECTION.
The elbow is susceptible to a lot of possible causes of discomfort and soreness, such as strain, repetitive or high-stress and demanding movement, or injury. A good compression elbow sleeve will help relieve the affected elbow joint by providing adequate support and protection, staying solidly in place the whole day no matter what activity, without rolling or bunching. Of course, rest and inactivity is recommended for recovery anyway, but not everyone has the option to stay off the joint entirely -- those who need to move around will really appreciate how the unisex elbow brace holds in place while remaining fresh and comfy all day.
SocksLane enjoys the highest reorder rate in the industry, and this is because the company focuses on quality and customer care. Plenty of reviews from satisfied and supportive customers readily attest to this.
