Cupping Therapy with our Riverdale Chiropractor
Our chiropractor in Riverdale, NJ uses a variety of natural healing techniques to treat your auto accident injuries, sports injuries, back pain, muscle strains and personal injuries. If you are living with pain or limited mobility, our chiropractic team evaluates your condition to determine the source of your issues. We are searching for causes such as a misaligned spine, herniated discs, muscular imbalances, spinal abnormalities or postural concerns.
Once identified, our chiropractor uses a holistic approach that may include physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments, sports medicine techniques, laser therapy, nutritional advice and cupping therapy. These services work together to create an environment in which your body heals naturally and effectively. Our goal is to position your body in a way that all your systems and organs are functioning at their best. Cupping therapy is one of the ways in which we achieve this goal.
Chiropractic Care and Cupping Therapy
Many people associated cupping therapy in a similar category as massage therapy. During a cupping therapy session, our doctor creates suction on your skin and then places a cup onto the skin. As a result, your skin is pulled into the cup which stimulates circulation and the removal of toxins. Another way cupping can be performed is in conjunction with acupuncture. During this type of cupping, the cups are positioned over the acupuncture needles. The cups are typically left on your skin for approximately three minutes.
The most common place to apply the cups is on your back, so you are lying face down on a table. As you relax and let the cupping therapy work, your body experiences a deeper relaxation and pain relief. Our Riverdale chiropractor may suggest cupping therapy for conditions such as back pain, muscle cramps, headaches and fatigue. Our chiropractors will speak with you about the ways cupping therapy fits into your sports medicine or physical therapy sessions. Cupping improves circulation to bring healing nutrients to an injured site and also to remove toxins from the injured area. This increased blood flow reduces your recovery time and also decreases inflammation and pain.
We may also combine cupping with traditional chiropractic adjustments. The cupping therapy eases muscle tension so your adjustments are smoother and your spine is able to remain in alignment for a longer time period.
