Just wanted to showcase, if you will, a couple of treatment options locally at East Texas Physical Therapy, PLLC: Cupping and Pneumatic Compression.
Cupping has been around a little while ( 3000 years) evolving in the ways it can be used over time. Cupping, when used in conjunction with manual therapy and (ASTYM), can improve tissue mobility, reduce pain and restore optimal movement. For further details call one of our licensed professionals at 903-335-8727. ( cupping tools in left picture)
Pneumatic compression also has been around a while. (Maybe not 3000 years!) Compression is quite often used in the treatment of venous problems and Lymphedema, it also is used for general swelling post operative and with injury. More recently it has become popular following workouts or athletic events to reduce DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness). Some of these devices can reach very high levels of pressure and one needs to make sure that there are no contraindications to use. If you are having problems with any of the above mentioned give us a call and we will answer all your questions and see if this is right for you!
Thank you for all your support!
