WHAT PATIENTS ARE SAYING! “I couldn’t move my arm for a month, had cupping done by Wayne and I felt relief instantly.

There is no doubt inmymind that Total Performance PT is blessed to have hired Wayne. His diagnostic skills are spot on, and his tailoredapproachtoPT interventionsetshimapartfromtheother PT facilities I have used. Excellent “bedside manner,” and I hope I will never need PT again, but if I do, I know where I am headed.” - Rich C. Cupping therapy isa formofalternativemedicine thatusessuction as a way of manipulating tissue. Because proper circulation is a key component of treating somany conditions, physical therapists use cupping as a complementary therapy for a wide range of health issues, from acne to high blood pressure and depression. Cupping is generally used in conjunction with other treatments to help alleviate pain. Neck pain, lower back pain and migraines are among the conditions for which patients have reported favorable results. Decreased stiffness is another welcome result many patients experience. By helping to improve circulation, especially of blood and lymphatic fluids, internal scar tissue is also broken up. This improves flexibility for the patient, as well as creates a greater range of motion. If you’re interested in cupping therapy, call 215.997.9898 today to learn more and schedule your appointment!
