Cupping has been known to help athletes decrease recovery time after undergoing strenuous training. This is because cupping helps to stimulate the chemical breakdown of toxins that delay muscles and tissue from healing. Cupping therapy also helps to alleviate inflammation.Massage cupping therapy can also help increase an athlete’s flexibility and extension capabilities. This can help them to train harder for longer periods.
If muscle spasms are a problem, massage cupping can also help alleviate them as well.
Muscles sometimes develop knotted areas called trigger points. These trigger points are highly sensitive and can be painful when touched. They are also often the cause of referred pain (or pain that affects another part of the body). The needles are used to stimulate the tissue, not to inject medication.
Dry needling is almost always used as a part of an overall plan that will likely include some type of exercise, manual therapy, heat therapy, and education.
Therapeutic exercises are movements and physical activities designed to restore function and flexibility, improve strength and decrease pain, improve gait and balance, and promote health, wellness, and fitness.
Education and advice
