USA- New York, NY | Jul 15 2012 | (23:06:19 - EDT)
With 10 million Americans annually receiving medical attention for their sports-related injuries, which equates to almost 26 per 1,000 people, it's interesting knowing how Olympians survive flights and airports with their sports-related injuries. Here are some testimonials from Olympic World Record Holder, Dennis Mitchell, who coaches Olympians Kellie Wells and Justin Gatlin.
Both of these Olympians can attest to the benefits of using copper when traveling and after training. As it pertains to flying with aches and pains, the Arthritis Treatment and Relief website has also detailed “How to Beat Aches and Pains if You Love to Fly.”
Copper has been used for thousands of years to aid in reducing inflammation, growing and sustaining connective tissue and aiding in blood flow and oxygen transport.
Therapeutic Copper Compression™ (TCC) works by combining a patented 56% copper-infused nylon yarn with a proprietary multi-direction compression technology. Compression helps stabilize muscle tissue, keeping the swelling of muscle fibers at a micro and manageable level
By placing the copper at the source of discomfort, it provides immediate relief from inflammation starts to stimulate blood flow and harnesses the other well-known health benefits of copper.
The multi-direction gentle compression is designed to be comfortably worn 24 hours a day. Therapeutic compression promotes pain relief, muscle recovery and blood flow while countering swelling and inflammation for unmatched comfort and relief throughout the entire day and while asleep.
Tommie Copper Cu29™ Compression Apparel is the first and only compression wear manufacturer to utilize multi-directional support and copper-infused yarn to provide relief from arthritis and other joint pains, promote muscle recovery and reduce inflammation all while being comfortable enough to be worn throughout the entire day.
