Chiropractic Care and Cupping

Posted by on Apr 19, 2017 in Anatomica 101, Scripta | 0 comments

Most people only think of adjustments when they think of chiropractic care; however, it may also include techniques such as acupuncture, ART, soft tissue manipulation and cupping!

Remember the 2016 Summer Games, where Michael Phelps sported weird bruises on his body? That was due to cupping, which is a traditional therapy used to treat many health conditions, including pain. It works by pulling blood to the area affected, which stimulates healing. Cupping improves circulation and loosens up muscles and joints.  It usually isn’t painful, and sterile equipment is always used.
