From what I read about people who say they get no relief, I can only assume that maybe it works on a certain type of pain or for certain individuals. As for me, I have several areas of the body that I have bought items for. When my ankles start hurting, either from stepping on my foot long, or from arthritis that was inherited, I can put it on the ankle, and my pain is gone almost instantly.
The same goes for my elbow, after going to the doctor and finding out I had tennis elbow. He sent me downstairs to buy the expensive huge sleeves. I left and ordered Tommie Copper sleeve and the pain was gone instantly and has never returned. I don't know why it works wonderfully for some and not for others.
You have to take very special care when washing them to preserve the copper. Cold wash and air dry.
My back is a little harder to make happy, but definitely an improvement. It's not in my head, that's for sure.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
