Cupping therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine in which a therapist puts special cups on your skin for a few minutes to create suction. People get it for many purposes, including to help with pain, inflammation, blood flow, relaxation and well-being, and as a type of deep-tissue massage.
One of the biggest causes of injuries in athletes and people working out in an elite program is asymmetry throughout the body, meaning one side of the body is different from the other.
Chiropractic adjustments allow the body to move as freely and openly as it was designed to do. When your spine is out of alignment, your muscles commonly spasm or cramp up, causing a decrease in range of motion. Opening you up for injuries.
Misalignments throughout the body slow down healing. When an athlete is injured, his or her body tries to protect itself with muscle spasms and inflammation. This will limit an athlete or a person in an elite training and weight loss program.
