Tired Of Chronic Pain? Cupping May Bring You The Relief You Need.

How Does Cupping Therapy Work?

Our Coralville, Iowa City, North Liberty, Tiffin, Tipton, or Williamsburg, IA physical therapists apply inverted rubber pumps or silicone cups to your skin during cupping therapy. During treatment, the pumps/cups are suctioned onto the skin. This creates a vacuum as the air in the cup cools, causing the skin to rise and the blood vessels to enlarge. This vacuum relieves pain, promotes relaxation, increases blood flow, and reduces inflammation.

As a result, neural tissues, fascia, skin, ligaments, muscles, and tendons become more easily dislocated. Cupping therapy releases trigger points, stimulates lymphatic flow, improves circulation, and breaks up scar tissue adhesion.

The Benefits Of Cupping Therapy At Our Coralville, Iowa City, North Liberty, Tiffin, Tipton, or Williamsburg, IA Physical Therapy Clinic

There are numerous advantages to using this treatment. Cupping is an effective treatment method for various disorders, including chronic neck pain, low back pain, and fibromyalgia. It can improve the health of your skin, alleviate respiratory problems, and even aid digestion. The negative pressure created by the suction in the cups aids in improving hydration and blood flow to body tissues, reduces bonding, and eliminates excess fluids. Cupping therapy also makes recovery faster and relieves symptoms associated with certain accidents and illnesses.

It is important to understand that cupping can result in circular bruises on the skin that can last up to two weeks. These bruises usually heal on their own and are nothing to be concerned about!
