“Release Your Muscles and Fascia with Myofascial Cupping”

What is Myofascial Cupping?

Back In Motion Physical Therapy & Performance employs cupping therapy to treat pain. This treatment method, also known as “tissue distraction release,” is an ancient form of alternative medicine. It was first used in ancient Chinese, Egyptian, and Middle Eastern societies to relieve pain and reduce inflammation.

Do you want to find out more about cupping and how it can help you relieve pain and discomfort while allowing you to resume your normal activities?

Common Conditions That Cupping Can Help With

Lower Back & Sciatica

Sports Medicine & Injuries

Neck Pain & Stiffness

Shoulder & Rotator Cuff

Knee Pain

Foot, Ankle, & Plantar Fasciitis

Hip Pain & Post Surgery


How Does Cupping Work?

During cupping therapy, our Fort MyersCape Coral & Estero, FL physical therapists apply inverted rubber pumps or silicone cups to your skin. During treatment, your therapist will suction the pumps/cups onto your skin. As the air in the cup cools, a vacuum is created, causing the skin to rise and the blood vessels to enlarge. This vacuum reduces inflammation and pain while also promoting relaxation and increasing blood flow.

As a result, neural tissues, fascia, skin, ligaments, muscles, and tendons are more prone to dislocation. Cupping therapy relieves trigger points, improves circulation, and helps to break up scar tissue adhesion.

What are the Benefits of Cupping Therapy?

This treatment has numerous benefits. Cupping is a successful treatment method for a variety of conditions, including chronic neck pain, low back pain, and fibromyalgia.

It can improve your skin’s health, alleviate respiratory issues, and even aid digestion. The suction in the cups creates negative pressure, which improves hydration and blood flow to body tissues, reduces bonding, and removes excess fluids. Cupping therapy also helps to speed up recovery and alleviate symptoms associated with certain injuries and illnesses.

It is critical to understand that cupping can cause circular bruises on the skin that can last for two weeks. These bruises usually heal on their own and are not cause for concern!

Dr Sharon was diligent in dealing with my back and neck issues. She increased my mobility tremendously and the home exercises she gave me did wonders for my golf game and general health. I want to continue a program to increase my mobility even more and enjoy the benefits of painless activities. Her program has done wonders

In September 2022 I had a complex shoulder surgery and began a regimen of physical therapy with Dr. Sharon Sims of Back in Motion here in Verandah. I can only say that today I’m in better physical shape then I’ve been in years. By following her treatment plan I’m able to play “pain free golf” a couple of time a week and participate in fitness activities -- pickleball is next on my list. It wasn’t easy, requiring a lot of work, but it paid off. Thanks Dr. Sharon.I have been seeing Dr. Sharon for a few weeks. After the 2nd visit the severe lower back pain was alleviated. So much so that I have been able to resume golf with much better swing ( although that's not saying much LoL).If you need physical therapy this is the place and she is the right doctor.Be prepared to work hard. If you follow directions you'll be satisfied.

Dr. Sharon is a miracle worker! I ended up with nerve damage after a partial knee replacement and was very slow to recover. Dr. Sharon kept me motivated even though I was not seeing immediate improvement. I kept at it and she has helped me build back my quad strength and range of motion. She noticed I also had some back issues and the orthopedic inserts she recommended for me are really alleviating my back pain and helping me with my gait. I also tried dry needling and that also helped relieve pain and helped with my range of motion. My surgeon said it could take up to a year for my nerves to regenerate and I plan on continuing to see Dr. Sharon until I reach my goal of walking without a limp and being able to resume an active lifestyle. Dr. Sharon was able to adapt exercises so that I could feel that I was improving and her vast experience in the field was obvious. I strongly recommend Dr. Sharon for both flexibility and pain treatment as well as post operative care. She is the best!

Sharon is an excellent physical therapist, highly competent, professional and personable! She has been helping me with both my shoulder and my back. I am now comfortably walking, doing the elliptical and biking, and will be golfing and playing pickleball soon. Thanks so much!

I attended an arthritis discovery seminar by Dr. Sharon Sims and found it very informative. I booked my first appointment for an evaluation and the office staff made the process extremely easy and more importantly, efficient! Dr. Sharon's diagnosis was thorough and a treatment plan immediately put into place and future appointments booked. I feel much better after just 4 appointments. Thank you, Dr. Sharon and Back in Motion! Highly recommend!

I suffered a stroke in early October 2021. The stroke mostly resulted in numbness and loss of sensory perception on my left side. However, Dr. Sharon pointed out that it also involved some loss of some motor skills along with a weakened sense of balance.Dr. Sharon has been working with me not only in strengthening my left side but also increasing my sense of balance which has definitely improved over the last several weeks. My golf game has also improved as a result of the therapy.Dr. Sharon’s diagnostic and evaluation skills are exceptional along with her ability to arrive at a treatment plan that has reduced some of the damage from my stroke. I highly recommend Dr. Sharon and am thankful for the physical therapy which she has provided.Thanks,Gary C. Reich D.D.S. ( retired)
