New York Post—December 18, 2017

New York Post reporter Lauren Steussy writes about a compression sleeve that was used by the cast of 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi'. According to the article, the sleeve surrounds weary muscles with ice cold temperatures.

Joshua S. Dines, MD, sports medicine surgeon at HSS, says that this practice has been around for ages but that technology has now streamlined the process.

Dr. Dines has used compression sleeves with professional athletes and notes that they can help athletes feel better and return to play faster. It is also helpful for those who have undergone surgery and need relief without relying too heavily on pain medication.
