Often, the layers of fascia can stick together and restrict your movement. Our PT applies soft, silicon cups to the restricted tissues. Mobile cupping involves gently gliding the cups across your skin and fascia, rather than leaving them in place for long periods. The cups help relieve pain/stiffness, improve circulation and increase blood flow to the tense areas.
2 How does myofascial cupping therapy work?
Cupping relieves the pressure on tender areas by realigning your underlying fascia and muscles. This benefits you by helping you move better without increasing pain or damaging your tissue.
3 Are there any side effects to cupping therapy?
Prolotherapy is a natural non-surgical method of assisting the body to heal injured or weakened joints, ligaments and tendons. With Prolotherapy, the weakened areas are injected with a solution that stimulates the growth of healthy, strong tissues. As the tendons and ligaments grow stronger and vibrant, the pain is alleviated and motion is restored. Whether a joint, ligament or tendon is causing you pain or instability, Prolotherapy might be the right choice for you.
