Abstract

Sports medicine is a constantly evolving field that requires ongoing research. This research allows clinicians to have the most up-to-date medical information, which allows them to provide their patients with the best care possible. The purpose of this comprehensive literature review was to identify cupping therapy as an effective rehabilitation and recovery modality. Additionally, cupping therapy was compared to more traditional methods, such as electrical stimulation, whirlpools, and ultrasound for rehabilitation and recovery. Additional research examined the effect of cupping therapy in treating injuries to upper versus lower extremities. A better understanding of this relatively popular treatment protocol will assist trainers and athletes to select the most appropriate modality for individual athletes.
