In Chronic Pain, Cupping can help.

Historical perspective: Cupping is a historical pain reducing modality. Egypt and China has played a major role in advancing this therapy. The earliest record of cupping in Egypt is a papyrus that dates back to 1,500 BC; cupping in China may extend as far back as 280 AD.

Cupping has been used to treat many health issues including arthritis, back pain, neck pain and migraines. Rehabon Physical Therapy, Downers Grove is now proud to offer cupping as a part of its physical therapy program. Our award-winning staff will employ the latest cupping techniques to help ease your pain condition.

Mechanism: Vasodilation is probably a major component of cupping’s efficacy. Cupping is known to significantly lower total cholesterol, and dilation of blood vessels may play a key role in this. This vasodilation may also stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, which relaxes muscles and improves pain symptoms.

If you or your friends and family members are suffering from chronic pain, we can help.
