Myofascial Decompression

Myofascial decompression uses negative pressure forces with suction cups to create lifting of tissues.


What is Myofascial Decompression

Myofascial Decompression is the application of using negative pressure forces with suction cups to create a lifting of the tissues underneath it. This creates space within the tissue layers for improved gliding and mobility.

When is Myofascial decompression used in your rehab?

Myofascial decompression has been proven to be effective in treating multiple musculoskeletal conditions, including acute and chronic injuries. The benefit of needling include the following:

  • Desensitize a painful area, and change how the brain perceives this area.

  • Increase blood flow to the site to change the tissue environment.

  • Change how the tissues in the area are sliding and gliding relative to one another.

  • Use the listed reason above to create an opportunity to improve movement patterning and quality.

Why is Myofascial decompression used in your rehab?

We at Front Runner Physiotherapy believe that myofascial decompression plays a small part of your overall treatment. Myofascial decompression feels good and helps you create a window of improved tissue mobility and decreased pain. This intervention is always followed with a loading or mobility exercise to improve movement patterns and movement quality to create lasting change.

How Front Runner Physiotherapy is changing Cupping for York, Pa.

Laying on a table with a bunch of cups on for 10 minutes while your therapist does something else is a thing of the past! Cupping while laying down and having cups placed all over is not changing much physiologically and is certainly not removing any toxins. As with all of our interventions, a scientific approach is taken with cupping by using biomechanics and functional anatomy to improve mobility and reduce restrictions. You got goals and movements that you want to get back to doing. Contact us today to find out to see if cupping is something that can help you improve your mobility and decrease the pain you might be experiencing.
