Back Pain and Wet Cupping Therapy (Hijamah)

Did you know that hijamah - cupping therapy is very good for long-lasting and persistent back pain? In a study to demonstrate these effects, an experiment was planned with 180 participants. One group was treated with cupping for 4 weeks, while the other group was given 6 weeks of rest, no weight lifting, and 3 weeks of normal treatment with oral pain relievers and muscle relaxants. The results are very interesting. At the end of the first week, both groups started to get rid of their pain with the effect of the therapy, and in the controls made in the 3rd and 6th months of the treatment, it was determined that the group receiving cupping therapy had a very large and significant reduction in pain compared to the other group. In addition to this benefit, no edema, rupture, infection or severe pain in the cupping area was observed in any patient. In other words, a successful treatment was achieved without any side effects.
