Question Do arm sleeves really help

I recently started getting pain in my right throwing elbow and I was wondering if arm sleeves will help relieve the pain. Help me out peeps

I really like KT tape myself

Compression Sleeves help but not quite like KT tape.

I like mine, probably more mental than anything else.

I'm not usually a believer in fads and things...
My wife was having an issue with her knee so I bought her one of the Tommy Copper sleeves just to try. She didn't seem to like the fit so it just sat around for a while. I couldn't take it back anyways so I gave it a try one day at work because my knee was hurting a little bit and I could not believe the difference for me just within a few hours. I am having an elbow issue as well so figured what the hell. I bought another Tommy Copper from Shoppers. I will be trying for the first time tomorrow...I will keep you posted if it helps

I can't say for sure about the elbow, it would depend on the type of pain, but I can say for sure that wearing compression shorts this season has definatly helped with my hamstring issues!

Just gonna say, playing thru the pain of my right elbow is what lead to breaking my elbow. Take it easy, elbow breaks are painful, the casts are heavy and cumbersome and the rehab is a *****.

That being said, I've been wearing a compression sleeve since I've started throwing again, it's not the tightest, and if anything it helps keep my muscles warm, and like someone else said - is probably mental.

However, I also feel like it keeps my muscles tense, which is actually what I want, I want my muscles to be involved in the throwing motion and for that it helps.

Update from above...
Wore the Tommy Copper sleeve last night, the good news is that I have no elbow pain this morning.
However, I did NOT have any long throws later in the game. For me, it is usually the later innings when your arm has cooled down then you try to throw to a base in a hurry that cause the biggest issue for me. The thing I did notice right away was almost a cooling effect with a bit of breeze. I did go with a loser fit as I don't like things too tight. ANYWHO...I will continue to wear it. I wont bore you with a weekly update but PM me in a few weeks if you are curious.
Have a great playoff season all!
Cheers, Sadz

That is why it is great to get an elastic pull and tie it to the fence and do some arm stretches with it between innings. You can go 30 minutes or more without a hard throw then all of a sudden you need to rifle one and there goes your arm. Always a good idea to keep it as loose as possible.
