Latest News - Cupping: Not Just for Olympians
You may have seen pictures recently of a number of Olympic athletes using cupping therapy as part of their rehab; the record breaking US swimmer Michael Phelps being one of them. Newspaper articles I read seemed to suggest that there is no scientific evidence of the benefits of cupping, but this is not true. For instance, a recent study investigated cupping therapy as a treatment for chronic neck and shoulder pain. Patients receiving cupping had their neck pain intensity scores reduced from 9.7 to 3.6. (There was a control group of patients who did not receive cupping treatment; their scores stayed about the same.)
