Thigh Compression Sleeve Keeps A Senior Athlete Active

Posted on March 18, 2015 by Thomas Parker, MD

"Love the product – came across the product at a Lacrosse festival outside of Chicago a few years ago – I ran track in college (30 years ago) and our trainer made similar compression sleeves for us when we were injured – the sleeves kept us training and competing. I have not been able to find this type of product on the market and was thrilled to come across your product a few years ago. As an aging runner, I need all the support I can get and the thigh compression sleeves keep me from straining my hamstrings and with on the road running."

This is another testimony to the benefit of compression for injury prevention in a senior athlete. I attended the USTA (United States Tennis Association) 60 and 65 National Championships in New Orleans this last week. Senior players from all over the country were wearing our products for injury management and prevention of elbow, thigh, knee, calf and ankle injuries. I was flabbergasted by the number of players who came up to me and wanted to know if I could supply products on an urgent basis to help with injury management or prevention.
