Tommie Copper, found online at TommieCopper.tv, is a new brand of copper infused compression wear that claims to be able to help anyone of any age improve their daily aches and pains associated with muscle and joint inflammation.
Tommie Copper specializes in compression wear for a variety of joints in your body, from arm sleeves to knee braces to ankle braces to full shirts. They even offer gloves and shorts, so literally no joint is left untreated. Montel Williams, celebrity spokesman for MoneyMutual, is also a representative for Tommie Copper, even recently promoting the brand on the Dr. Oz show.
Copper is believed to be able to treat inflammation, which is the issue behind common joint pain and arthritis pain. It is also believed to help stimulate the immune system, repair injured tissues, and promote healing in general.
In addition to the copper, Tommie Copper claims that their compression wear is better able to provide benefits to their wearers than other compression items due to its actual wearability.
Compression stabilizes muscle tissue, which keeps swelling fibers at a manageable level, and increases oxygen blood flow to the muscles. However, compression wear is only effective when it is being worn, so comfort is a key factor.
Tommie Copper says their products are specially designed to be comfortable so that they can be worn for longer periods of time, therefore giving their wearers the maximum amount of comfort and relief from aches and pains.
Tommie Copper offers a 30 Day Comfort Challenge to new users. If you the item you order does not provide relief within 30 days, you may return the item for a refund, no questions asked.
This product worked for my vega, my Dr. said to give it a try since I refuse to take any medicine that would just mask the problem and I would be on it as long as I didn't want any problems wity my vega. I don't worry about side effects with this product.
I have sat here and read both the positive as well as the negative reviews and I am going to order and try for myself. I am ate up with arthritis (back, neck, shoulder, hips, and shoulders, wrists and fingers) and no amount of pain medicine seems to help unless I get epiderral injections or radio frequencies. I have a tens unit and they are so hard to wear. I do that copper does help, compression helps, heat helps, and with this you have all three at once. I don't feel as though I have anything to lose. So for now a 5 star based on results from copper, heat, and compression.
Terrible knees (high school football), hips (ex-marathon runner) and aging (62 years old).
I think I feel better. I noticed that yesterday I did not need to hold onto the bannister when coming down the stairs. Worked 2-hours yesterday raking in the backyard. No pain anywhere this morning.
I have only had them for 3-days but I am wearing them everywhere. We'll see, but for now I am very satisfied.
I am 50,RA. FiBOrMyalgia, all joint pain and I am considering a loan. Not because this line is over priced,Not so!! very reasonably priced, Its that I will need nearly every pc!! However. I feel that complied to this product. Montell Williams is without a doubt Honest. He does not indorse every dinky dodad! When it comes to pain, he is, (in the know.) with MS he has every reason to be forthcoming. I never have felt this strongly about something I have not even seen except on TV. If I am able to try this... you will hear from me and if I have to borrow the money and it Is a farce!! OH Yea!!! the world will know my name and my opinion.
Hello. I bought the Tommie Copper because I am having pain with Sciatica. My Fiance saw this product on TV and told me to check into it. I did! I figured that Montel is an Awesome spokes person for things that he believes will help others because of his own health issues. I am here to say that Tommie Copper Works! For those who feel this product has done them no justice......there's clearly a reason why. Remember that you are told to buy the right size so that the sleeve (which ever you buy) fits where it's not tight. Maybe some of you aren't doing just that. It's supposed to be loose and comfortable for you to wear. I am now going to spend more money on an investment that I believe is well worth it. Thank you Montel for caring for others. You are so not a egotistical person and I feel the love, help, and support that you want and have for others. You can't please everyone. I loves me some Montel!
I am 59 and have arthritis in my knees. The knee sleeves help ease the pain when going up and down stairs. I have worn them for 3 days and am not sure if they help due to the warmth, mild support or copper. Anything that helps is worth it to me.
My wife bought the Tshirt for me as I suffer from muscle pain and it really works. I feel quite a difference when I wear it as opposed to wearing any other tshirt.
First, may I say that for those of you for whom this product did not work, or did not work well, I'm sorry. But it's irresponsible to claim that it's a fake just because it didn't work for you. Nothing is 100%. This product clearly works very well for some, pretty good for others, and not so much for a certain percentage of you. That doesn't make it a scam and it doesn't make Montel a liar or scam artist.
I tried this for knee pain from some torn tendons that never seemed to heal correctly. I would say I noticed about an 80% decrease in discomfort in my knee while going about my day and it no longer gives out on me unexpectedly. For me, this product worked, and worked well. My husband tried the shirt for some shoulder discomfort he's had for years and he felt it helped maybe 25%. So for him, this product was minimally successful. But as he says, half a loaf is better than none at all and he's happy with whatever relief he can get.
For me the bottom line is this -- if you have pain give these products a try. Sure, they may not work well for you, but they just might work very well like they did for me. It's certainly worth a try since they really aren't all that expensive. And if they don't work for you, please don't throw them away, pass them on to someone else for whom they just might work better than they did for you. Don't just assume "scam" and toss them. That's selfish and irresponsible. Instead, think logically and know that these won't work for everyone, but they will work for many.
My mother had swelling in her lower legs. The blood was not flowing upward to her heart efficiently. The doctor's recommendations were not working. They didn't know what to do. I bought her the Tommie Copper calf and knee sleeves and within a week her legs were normal size. One of her doctors called the progress amazing. I'm a tennis player from way back and the product has been very helpful for me also.
Tommie Copper is a great product. Some of the people who write negative reviews are doing them for reasons which are not legitimate.
This company is performing a great service for the buying public.
Nothing written to the contrary will change that fact.
I understand the benefit of wearing this product during physical activities. However, I am supposed to wear this all the time? I am concerned that the added support might weaken my natural stabilizing muscles and make me more likely to injure myself if I stop wearing it. Any thoughts?
I have had two surgeries on my stomach in the past 7 years and for the longest suffered from stomach muscles pain, spasm and swelling (blotty. I am normally very energetic but have been cautious in all I do regarding exercise because it would irritate the old scar tissue making me regret exercising.
I purchased the shorts and the knee pad last week, receiving them Friday, Dec 7. I have worn them everyday since then and would love to broadcast to all how good I have been feeling since I started wearing both items.
This past Saturday I was out all day shopping and did not feel the normal stomach discomfort that I suffer thru daily. I will be buying the shirt and another knee paid and will be telling all about this great find.
I can't get customer service. voicemail is always full and waiting on hold lasts for hours. even emails are not answered.
I haven't tried it yet, but hope it works better than the customer service.
very frustrating not being able to have contact with anyone. Makes me wonder if it is a scam.
seriously, i have been debilitated with arthritic knee pain flaring up every other week. tommie copper has restored a new level to me i've never had before in the last 20 years. i've been wearing it for 2 weeks now and told at least a couple dozen people, even demonstrating kneeling on the hard floor without pain. before i could NOTget down. i could be a spokes-person for you. it works!!
I severely sprained (probably broke) my ankle a couple years ago and it's never completely healed. I bought the ankle compression sock, thinking I would wear it for support. I didn't realize how loose they were and thought I had been scammed. I started wearing it to bed and the bottom line is, it's working. I only gave it 4 stars because I still think I'm tricking myself in to believing. I'm not sure how I'm tricking my wife in to liking her knee compressions but it's just too good to be true.
Tommie Copper is highly unprofessional and evasive. So far I have called twice (and you can never reach anyone on the telephone) so their voice prompt encourages you to leave a message (so I left two messages) and no one has called me back. I also mailed back my knee sleeve to them to get a refund because the sleeve does not work at all. When the post office attempted to deliver it the first time they couldn't because they were informed "no one authorized to sign was available". I operate my own company as well and there is always a staff member available to sign for packages, so what kind of operation is this that no one is available to sign for packages, and no one returns any phone calls (I left two messages). Also, in an attempt to reach someone I utilized the online contact form twice to no avail. If my refund is not received soon I will have to escalate this legally to the proper channels. Tommie Coppers refund policy states within 30 days they have to have the product back for the customer to receive a refund, however what they don't tell you is that chances are they won't return your phone call or emails until after the 30 days is up, so chances are you won't get a refund. I will never purchase anything from Tommie Copper again, and will encourage everyone I know to do the same. Highly unprofessional.
I have a connective tissue disease, fibromyalgia, and a circulatory disorder. I have suffered from cold hands and feet (Raynaud's syndrome) and my husband cracked jokes my body was so cold it was like sleeping near a corpse at night.
I also suffer from arthritis in my spine, scoliosis, and degenerative and bulging discs. I am only 35, so this has been traumatic to say the least. I know pain and poor circulation well!!
TRUST ME, I HAVE TRIED IT ALL!!
I have fallen in love with Tommy's clothing. My hands and feet are warm, along with the rest of me! I wear it to my physical therapy, and my PT said she thought it was a good idea.
My body is warm, my pain is less, and the best part is it is sooo comfortable you can sleep in it...trust me...I HAVE!! :)
If you could buy these in stores and you didn't like them then you could return them without the problems.
I would never order this product again...i still have not gotten it, 4 weeks now...Montell you suck and you are full of it
My husband has arthritis in his knees that his getting worse. A friend at work suggested Tommy Copper for his knees. I purchased them and he started wearing them . Immediately he got relief. He wore them every day 24/7. The problem he encountered was his shins began to ache really bad. He took the tommy coppers off and it quit. Would like to know if anyone else has had this problem?. He is torn now between wearing them for his knees to feel better and suffering with the shin ache or just stop wearing them altogether.
Just bought my first two, one for my 80 yr. old mom and one for myself, been wearing my knee pad for 4 days. Both of us are feeling much better, I'm buying the pants in a few days. One thing I would like is a new color, nude would be perfect so I can wear it with shorts. Very very pleased with the results.
