Scar Tissue...How Deep Does it Go?
Here we can see how scar tissue can dive deep penetrating all the layers of tissue. Imagine how this can effect movement to surrounding tissues.
Myofascial Decompression (MFD) or “cupping” is a another great way to restore the normal “slide and glide” of muscles, tendons, nerves, fascia, and connective tissue.
What’s the difference between massage and cupping? The application! We typically massage at different pressures to free up restricted regions improving circulation and that slide and glide properly of muscles, tendons, fascia, etc. With MFD we use negative pressure to pull or decompress structures locally achieving the same effect as massaging. MFD is another technique or layer to your treatment to get you moving better and with less discomfort.
Where do I put it on? How much pressure do I use? How long do we leave it on for? Get evaluated by a specialist and see what's best for you.
