Cupping is a modality where suction is created within the “cup” then applied to the skin. The suction causes a decompression of the tissues, which can help increase blood flow to the area, reduce pain, and improve range of motion.
For your first appointment to our clinic you should schedule about an hour to 90 minutes of your time in clinic. Paperwork will be sent to you beforehand to give us information about your condition and overall health. If you can’t complete this beforehand, you should arrive to your first appointment 15 minutes early.
After your provider receives your paperwork, they will conduct a thorough history which includes questions about the pain you experience and your general health. They will then conduct a physical examination which involves moving your joints to recreate your pain.
Once your provider finishes your physical examination, you will have a discussion together about your diagnosis and treatment plan moving forward.
