Cupping and manual therapy provide a myriad of benefits. Cupping enhances circulation, eases muscle tension, and aids in pain relief. Manual therapy improves joint flexibility and promotes musculoskeletal function. Together, they alleviate pain, enhance performance, and expedite recovery.
For the past 4-5 years, Riya Sonkar has served as a consultant physiotherapist in Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh. Apart from being a certified cupping therapist and manual therapist, she is an IASTM expert and is proficient in dry needling practice.
My priority is to ensure the patient’s comfort by securing their privacy. I will cover all the appropriate areas, exposing only the affected part to be treated. Thoroughly explaining each step, I aim to establish clear communication with the patient and offer a compassionate touch during the treatment process.
I actively participate in the latest workshops, read physiotherapy newsletters, research papers, and engage in discussions with colleagues to stay updated and informed in my field. This dedication to learning has allowed me to deliver effective and evidence-based treatments.
Indeed, I have a strong passion for attending conferences and workshops, and I’m particularly excited about taking part in BFRT (Blood Flow Restriction Training) in the near future.
Certainly, in my practice, I employ various cupping methods, including ice, electric, and functional cupping. Additionally, I also integrate cupping with needling techniques for certain treatments. This diverse approach enables me to offer a well-rounded and personalized treatment plan to my patients.
The selection of treatment primarily relies on the individual’s muscle and fascia condition. However, I generally advise opting for the treatment twice a month, as this frequency ensures steady progress and yields optimal results in the majority of cases.
