Activa Physical Therapy Explains Ancient Therapy Technique
Activa Physical Therapy, a physical therapy clinic in Naperville, is explaining the very effective physical therapy technique called cupping.

Naperville, IL – Physical therapy facilities offer many different ways to achieve pain relief for their clients.  One of these therapies is a cupping technique used by ancient civilizations that is very helpful, yet not understood by the average patient.  Activa Physical Therapy has been applying this cupping technique for over seven years and has experienced great success in pain relief.

If they want to try this type of manual therapy, Naperville residents can come to Activa Physical Therapy.  Cupping was originally used thousands of years ago. The basic principle is that cups are warmed, then placed on the area that is producing pain.  As the cup cools, a vacuum is produced which pulls blood to the surface of the skin.

Activa Physical Therapy uses three cupping strategies.  Sometimes the cups are moved along the length of muscles.  Other times, cups are moved in circles to release the skin and ligaments, and tendons.  Also, cups can be used in a cross-fiber motion if the tissue beneath the cups has scar tissue adhesions.

When looking for sports physical therapy, Naperville athletes can come to Activa Physical Therapy for cupping therapy. Many Olympic athletes such as Michael Phelps have been promoters of cupping therapy for sore muscles.  Cupping relieves muscle pain, calms down the inflammatory response, and helps a patient feel relaxed. During this kind of physical therapy, Naperville residents have even reported relief from neck pain, fibromyalgia, and chronic heel pain.
