IT Band Contracture- What the heck it is and how to treat it through cupping

Debbie bringing you some of that healing wisdom, let’s talk about IT Band Contracture and the benefits of ‘Cupping’.

So what is IT Band Contracture?

It can be described as a shortening and thickening of the IT Band which causes lateral tracking of the patella, which can lead to knee pain as well as hip and groin pain and numbness in the foot😲. This can be the case for people who are sitting for extended periods of time (if you work at an office) or people with “knock knees” .

So how can we treat it? 💆

Fascial release techniques such as ‘cupping’ can help loosen up that stubborn fascia tissue and increase blood flow to the area. Where there is dead, static blood, lymph, cellular debris, pathogenic factors and toxins in the body, cupping can leave marks which indicates that the stagnation of disease has been moved from the deeper tissue layers to the surface. Also by moving the cups around as they are attached it help further break down the tissue- aka less pain! ✔✔
