At Anodyne, we perform many treatments that are the result of many years of refining. A crucial example of this is chiropractic cupping, which has been around for thousands of years. The reason for this is that cupping uses a very simple but effective technique, which is negative pressure. Unfortunately, this is not something you can DIY at home. Placing a cup from your cabinet on your arm is quite different from a professionally provided cupping therapy session. Thankfully, trained experts in cupping are available right now.
This procedure involves a professional placing cup-like instruments on the patient’s skin. Using various chiropractic cupping techniques, the healthcare professional can create a vacuum inside the cup. This creates a suction effect that, at first, may make your skin appear red and swollen. Don’t worry, this is part of the procedure and isn’t a permanent side effect. This is a procedure for pain relief, after all. While this is happening to your skin, there’s a lot happening beneath the surface.
The negative pressure that occurs during chiropractic cupping helps improve blood circulation around the target area and reduce pain and inflammation. At Anodyne, we can use this procedure to address problems such as shoulder pain, rheumatism, arthritis, and various sports injuries. If you’re experiencing chronic pain, cupping is among the many methods we can consider because, even after thousands of years, it remains an effective form of pain relief.
We can also explore this treatment for patients experiencing sciatica. Our team specializes in looking at each patient and assessing them as a whole to find the right pain management procedure. Although chiropractic cupping therapy involves using medical instruments, it remains a less invasive procedure than surgery.
