Need for cupping therapy to get relief from Knee arthritis

Cupping Therapy knee arthritis

If you are someone who is undergoing treatment for some sort of arthritis, let’s say knee arthritis, you are not alone. About 1 out of 4 Americans suffer from arthritis; this is not very prevalent among youngsters, but the cases are increasing in recent years. Young athletes are prone to arthritis. If all the tried and tested remedies have failed, try cupping therapy for once. This blog will provide all the necessary details, but before we jump in, let’s get some basic ideas about arthritis.

When we speak about arthritis, it more or less indicates an “aging problem.” But things have changed now. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), around 7.1% of people, aged 18 to 44, are vulnerable to some form of arthritis. This concludes that about 1 in 14 people under the age of 45 have some form of arthritis.

This blog particularly focuses on knee arthritis.

What is knee arthritis?

This is chronic inflammation and deterioration of the cartilage in the knee joint. Cartilage refers to the coating or lubrication at the end of the bone that helps in movements, like bending or straightening. When the cartilage starts to degrade, the space between the bones narrows, creating friction that results in arthritis. 

(Cartilage is a flexible substance that helps in the movement of joints in the knees, and elbows.)

(Inflammation is the swelling of a body part that happens as a result of an injury or illness.)

How does cupping therapy help to get relief from arthritis?

When all other methods have failed, cupping or hijama therapy can help. As we have understood, the swelling of the affected/injured area results in joint pain. When the cups are placed on the body, it creates suction and pulls up the skin over the muscles and organs. 

Major factors in arthritis 

Age: Arthritis is most prevalent in the elderly. Aging adults lose calcium and other important nutrients from the body, which increases the risk of arthritis.

Heredity: Many times, heredity plays a significant role. Certain genes cause the potential risk; for instance, rheumatoid arthritis is expected to be hereditary. The risk of inheritance is extremely low.

Overweight: It is one of the leading causes of knee osteoarthritis (OA). The Johns Hopkins Arthritis Center concluded a link between the two (overweight/obesity and knee OA).

Injury: People suffering from injuries are vulnerable to arthritis. Similarly, young athletes also have a major risk. 

Gender: Postmenopausal women have low bone density, which makes them susceptible to arthritis.

Excessive exercise: Heavy exercise and movement cause severe friction in the joint that results in arthritis.

High cholesterol and diabetes: Many people with high levels of cholesterol and diabetes develop arthritis. Studies have shown that inflammatory arthritis is mostly linked to Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes.


Pain: This happens due to excessive movements or exercise in the body. Activities such as sitting or standing for long hours worsen the pain.

Stiffness: Arthritis causes difficulty with movements.

Knee locking: This happens as a result of rough cartilage. 

Joints making a cracking or clicking sound: During movement, joints begin to make a cracking or clicking sound.

Weakness: Excessive restriction of physical activities causes joint weakness. 

Why should you opt for cupping therapy?

Cupping therapy is not only limited to preventing hair loss, or giving you soft, glowing skin, but it also eases pain in several body parts. This article will provide some insights into why one should opt for cupping therapy while struggling with arthritis.

Pain relief: This archaic therapy helps you get quick relief from pain in the joints or any part of the body.

Increases blood flow: As a result of the suction process, the toxins are removed. The blood flow is increased in the affected areas of the body. 

Nutrients and oxygen: Due to an increase in blood flow, the therapy promotes nutrients and oxygen in the body.

Reduce fatigue: When your body gets enough nutrients and oxygen, it naturally helps to increase immunity and reduce fatigue.
