WHAT IS Cupping?
Each year research continually emerges and suggests that cupping may be an effective treatment for a variety of musculoskeletal conditions. Cupping is a type of alternative therapy that involves placing suction cups on the skin for several minutes to assist in decreasing muscle pain and discomfort. The aim of this treatment to improve the blood flow to the targeted region, and facilitate healing. Cupping is generally used side-by-side with Chiropractic Adjustments and other treatment options supplied by our Perth Chiropractors.
How Does Cupping Work?
Cupping draws blood and increases the blood circulation to the region where the cups have been applied . This may assist in relieving muscle tension, and promote cellular repair in irritated or injured muscle tissue. Some research that looked into the mechanical effects of cupping has also suggested that may assist in the creation of new blood vessels and connective tissue in the targeted area.
It has also been suggested that cupping may have systemic health benefits. The thought behind this is that the activation of Heme oxygenase-1 caused by cupping, would account for the claimed systemic health benefits. Heme oxygenase-1 is a gene which plays a substantial role in the prevention of vascular inflammation.
Does Cupping Hurt?
As with any therapy, myofascial cupping can be uncomfortable, however each patient is likely to have a different experience. Generally speaking it would be likely to have a feeling of pressure in the area that the cup is applied. The good news is that each cupping will generally only be applied for 3-4 minutes, and may be glided along the target muscle during this time.
Whilst many patients that consult with our Perth Chiropractors do not like needles, Myofascial Cupping is a great alternative to Dry Needling.
