Cupping increases blood circulation to the area where the cups are placed. This relieves muscle tension to help improve range of motion and relieve pain.
Cupping is a therapeutic technique that involves placing suction cups on the skin to create a vacuum-like effect. It has been used for centuries in traditional Chinese medicine and has gained popularity in recent years for its potential benefits in pain management and relaxation.
The suction of the cups can help stimulate blood flow and lymphatic drainage, reduce muscle tension, and promote relaxation. Cupping is often used in combination with other chiropractic techniques, such as manual manipulation or exercise therapy, to help improve range of motion and relieve pain.
One benefit of cupping is that it can be adjusted to the patient's individual needs and preferences. The intensity and duration of the treatment can be varied depending on the patient's level of pain or discomfort. Additionally, different sizes and types of cups can be used to target specific areas or provide a more generalized treatment.
Dynamic cupping treatment may cause mild discomfort or bruising in some patients, but these effects are typically temporary. As with any chiropractic treatment, it is essential to consult with a qualified practitioner to determine whether dynamic cupping is appropriate for your individual needs.
