Cupping Therapy Performed by Qualified Chiropractors in Wichita, KS
Content reviewed by Dr. Sam Reals, DC
Cupping, or cupping therapy, is a soft tissue procedure in which special cups are placed on the skin to create a suction effect.
How Chiropractic Cupping Therapy Works
The goal of cupping is to help balance tension within the body, by releasing areas holding too much tension via cups. Our chiropractors at ICT Muscle & Joint Clinic, utilize cupping for the treatment and rapid release of taut soft tissues, myofascial pain, inflammation, blood flow, and improved joint range of motion.
Cupping works by creating a “negative” tension on the skin, muscles, and fascial areas of the body. Instead of applying pressure onto the body, commonly associated with a vast amount of soft tissue therapies, cupping draws the pressure away from the problematic area creating the “negative” tension effect.
What are the Different Styles of Chiropractic Cupping?
Cupping is a fantastic and effective soft tissue technique when other therapies or strategies do not produce wanted results. Conversely, cupping can work in conjunction with other modalities.
Our approach to cupping is more modern than a traditional approach. There are many different styles of cupping including: dry cupping (cupping with and without movement), wet cupping, or hot cupping.
