Do Basketball Shooting Sleeves Really Work?

Some spectators and even players may believe that basketball shooting sleeves are only an individual vanity statement. But, since they first gained popularity in the game in the early 2000s, experience and research has shown that there are definite benefits for wearing basketball sleeves – not only on the shooting arm, but on both arms. Several of the reasons why athletes wear compression tights, shorts, or undershirts apply to arm sleeves as well. They help to regulate temperature, improve flexibility, and promote efficient blood flow to prevent swelling and soreness. Basketball shooting sleeves can also help to align the elbow and steady the arm while taking a shot.
