Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a clinician puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. Patients may receive cupping for many different reasons. Cupping draws fresh blood to a region of the body which allows for rapid healing of tissue and also pain reduction.
Cupping therapy can reduce muscle and fascial tissue tension, and increase mobility. Our doctors at Lakeside Spine & Wellness will use cupping therapy at strategic times during a patient’s treatment plan to aid in the rapid recovery of tight tissues.
