RESUMO

Cupping therapy can relieve muscle fatigue and pain after exercise by increasing blood flow at the treatment site, which may lead to dynamic changes of the local skin temperature. This study aimed to analyze the effect of cupping on local skin temperature under two different negative pressures using infrared thermography (IRT). Cupping therapy was performed on the forearms of 22 healthy subjects using the negative pressures of - 0.03 and - 0.04 MPa. IRT was used to record the dynamic changes in skin temperature before, during, and after cupping. Both cupping pressures induced a non-linear skin temperature response: temperature decreased first and then increased during cupping, while it first increased and then decreased after cupping. A significant difference was noted between the two negative pressure groups in the maximum temperature increment after cupping (P < 0.001). Compared with the basal temperature before cupping, the maximum increase in skin temperature after cupping in the - 0.03 and - 0.04 MPa groups was 0.92 and 1.42 °C, respectively. The findings of this study can lay the foundation evaluating the curative effect of cupping based on IRT and provide an objective reference for selecting the cupping negative pressure.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To observe the effects of pricking and cupping therapy combined with Chinese herbal wet compress on Th1/Th2 balance and the concentration of substance P (SP) in treatment of patients with herpes zoster at acute stage and explore the mechanism of clinical efficacy of this combined therapeutic method. METHODS: The patients of herpes zoster at acute stage were randomly divided into a treatment group (58 cases), a control group No.1 (57 cases), a control group No.2 (58 cases) and a control group No.3 (59 cases). In the treatment group, the therapeutic regimen was pricking and cupping+Chinese herbal wet compress+basic treatment. In the control group No.1, pricking and cupping + basic treatment were administered. In the control group No.2, Chinese herbal wet compress+basic treatment were provided. In the control group No.3, only basic treatment was delivered. The treatment duration was 9 days in each group. The score of pain degree, the score of sleep quality and the rehabilitation conditions of pain and herpes were observed in 4 groups. The concentration of serum interleukin 4 (IL-4), interferon gamma (IFN-γ) and SP were detected by ELISA. The clinical efficacy was evaluated. The occurrence of adverse reaction during treatment was observed. RESULTS: After treatment, the score of pain degree and the concentrations of serum IL-4 and SP were all lower than those before treatment in 4 groups (P<0.05); and the score of subjective sleep quality, the concentrations of serum IFN-γ and IFN-γ/IL-4 were all increased in comparison with those before treatment (P<0.05). In the treatment group and the control groups No.1 and No.2, the score of pain degree and the concentrations of serum IL-4 and SP were all lower than those in the control group No.3 (P<0.05); and the score of subjective sleep quality, the concentrations of serum IFN-γ and IFN-γ/IL-4 were higher than those in the control group No.3, respectively (P<0.05). Besides, every indicator in the treatment group was improved more significantly than that either in the control group No.1 or the control group No.2 (P<0.05). After treatment, compared with the control group No.3, the time of pain relief and disappearance, and the time of blister termination, incrustation and decrustation were all shorter in the treatment group, the control group No.1 and the control group No.2 separately (P<0.05); and every indicator in the treatment group was reduced more significantly in comparison with either the control group No.1 or the control group No.2 (P<0.05). The total effective rate in the treatment group (96.55%, 56/58), the control group No.1 (92.98%, 53/57) and the control group No.2 (91.38%, 53/58) was higher than that in the control group No.3 (74.58%, 44/59, P<0.05). No any adverse reaction occurred in the 4 groups. CONCLUSION: The pricking and cupping therapy combined with Chinese herbal wet compress effectively promotes the recovery of Th1/Th2 balance and reduces the concentration of serum SP in patients with herpes zoster at acute stage. This combined therapeutic regimen is conductive to the recovery of patients, the improvement of therapeutic effects and the decrease of the risk of pos-therpetic neuralgia.

RESUMO

AIM: To evaluate the effects of dry cupping therapy (DCT) and creatine supplementation (CS) on cardiovascular and inflammatory responses to the Wingate test. METHODS: In this quasi-experimental study, 12 male handball young players were selected in a crossover design. Players were studied in four conditions: DCT; CS; CS+DCT, control. In all conditions, blood pressure, heart-rate, and body composition were measured pre- and post- Wingate test. Players were assessed by the Wingate test in two 30-second phases with a 1-minute break between the phases. Blood [lactate-dehydrogenase (LDH), creatine phosphokinase (CK)] was drawn pre- and immediately post- the Wingate test. In players with CS condition, 60 g of creatine was consumed per day in three consecutive days prior to the study (3 meals of 20 g in morning, noon, and night). The DCT was performed after Wingate test to consider its possible effects for alleviating the muscle injury markers. Data were evaluated using analysis of covariance followed by a post-hoc Bonferoni test. RESULTS: The heart-rate' means in DCT, CS and CS+DCT conditions were lower compared to the control-condition (p.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Despite its growing popularity since the mid-1900s, the application procedures and factors influencing the usage of cupping therapy among healthcare professionals in the United States remains unclear. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical usage, application procedures, and perceived effectiveness of cupping therapy among healthcare professionals in the United States. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A convenience sample of 158 healthcare professionals (age: 29.36 ± 7.42 years) participated in this cross-sectional study (completion rate = 86.15%; n = 158/195). A custom web-based survey designed to assess respondents' clinical incorporation of cupping therapy, was disseminated through snowball sampling on various social media platforms. Descriptive statistics including means, standard deviations, and frequencies were calculated per survey item. RESULTS: Ninety-one percent of respondents reported working as an athletic trainer in either a secondary school (30%) or collegiate setting (48%). Dry cupping was the most commonly reported type of cupping therapy (99%), and 75% of respondents reported using both static and moving cupping techniques. Significant differences in cup application time and the amount of air extraction were noted between static and moving cupping. Cupping therapy was reported as most effective for treating muscle tightness, myofascial trigger points, and musculoskeletal pain. CONCLUSION: While the usage and application of cupping therapy may vary based on the type and style of cupping as well as the patient's condition, respondents reported cupping therapy to be an effective method for treating various musculoskeletal conditions.

RESUMO

Background: Chronic pain is a complex phenomenon that brings physical and emotional impairments negatively impacting people's quality of life. The adoption of interventions such as ear acupuncture and dry cupping can represent a treatment option for people with chronic back pain. Objectives: To investigate the effects of ear acupuncture combined with dry cupping therapy on the interference of pain with the daily activities and quality of life of adults with chronic back pain. Methods: An open-label, randomized, parallel-group controlled clinical trial. One hundred and ninety-eight adults were randomized into control (CG - ear acupuncture) or experimental (EG - ear acupuncture combined with dry cupping) groups. Interventions were performed in five sessions, once a week, lasting five weeks. Evaluations were performed before the first session, after the last session, and seven days after the second evaluation, using the Brief Pain Inventory to assess the impact of pain on daily activities and the World Health Organization Quality of Life-BREF (WHOQOL-BREF) to assess the quality of life. Results: Between the initial and final sessions, there were significant changes in daily activities , activity, work, mood, relationships, sleep, and in the physical, psychological and social relationships domains for both the control and experimental groups. Improved perception of quality of life and satisfaction with health were observed for the participants in the experimental group. Conclusion: Ear acupuncture combined with dry cupping showed better results in terms of perception of quality of life and satisfaction with health when compared to ear acupuncture by itself.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: The current quality of evidence supporting dry cupping for individuals with chronic low back pain (CLBP) is low and suggests that nonspecific factors impact experiences reported by patients. Therefore, this study assessed the impacts of social and professional support on the experience of individuals with CLBP treated with dry cupping or sham. METHOD: This is an observational study with qualitative approach. Twenty-four individuals with CLBP who received dry cupping or sham in a previous clinical trial were invited. Data was collected using a semi-structured interview conducted by a trained researcher. Content analysis was used to analyze experiences, systematic procedures, and description of the content of messages. The dimensions of "pain", "general perceptions", and "perceived social and professional support" guided the analysis. RESULTS: Answers of both groups converged on similar perceptions, especially regarding pain. Physical condition was the most fragile aspect. We also observed an influence of perceived social and professional support on painful symptoms. Thus, the experience of individuals with CLBP treated with dry cupping or sham indicated that factors related to social and professional support impacted results. CONCLUSIONS: We observed that individuals with CLBP reported similar perceptions of the effects of dry cupping or sham treatment, indicating that contextual factors may influence the perception of these individuals regarding the treatment received.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVES: To investigate the possible effects of wet-cupping therapy (hijama) on autoimmune activity and thyroid hormonal profiles of Hashimoto's disease (HD) patients. METHODS: A prospective pilot controlled trial was carried out among adult females following HD at the Endocrinology Clinic of King Abdulaziz University Hospital, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, from February 2014 until March 2017. A total of 13 patients (intervention group) underwent 3 hijama sessions at 3-week interval with a 6-month follow-up. Blood tests were carried out for both pre- and post-hijama, including: thyroid peroxidase antibody (TPO), thyroglobulin antibody (TG), thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH), thyroxine-4 (T4), and prolactin. Control group included 13 randomly selected HD patients following usual care with 2 consecutive measurements of TPO and TG at 2-3 months interval. RESULTS: Changes in anti-TPO and anti-TG showed a decrease in hijama group versus an increase in control group, and intervention group comparison was statistically significant. On a fixed thyroxine supplement for each patient, significant decrease in levels of anti-TPO, anti-TG, TSH, prolactin, and erythrocyte sedi-mentation rate (ESR) occurred. CONCLUSION: These findings are presumptive to the efficacy of hijama on the pathogenesis of HD in modulating the immune inflammatory process demonstrated by the reduction in ESR, TPO, and TSH levels on a fixed thyroxin supplementation dose, along with patient-reported clinical improvement and positive changes in ultrasound including regaining of gland physiological size, echogenicity, and vascularity.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Obesity is a prevalent disease in modern society. Despite the various interventions available in conventional medicine, their success rates are not satisfactory because of the complex mechanisms involved in obesity. Cupping therapy is a traditional Chinese medicinal intervention, and it has become widely used in various clinical settings for the treatment of obesity. This systematic review and meta-analysis will investigate the effects of cupping on obesity. METHODS: Three Korean databases (KoreaMed, Oriental Medicine Advanced Searching Integrated System, and ScienceON), 1 Japanese database (Citation Information by the National Institute of Informatics), 1 Chinese database (Chinese National Knowledge Infrastructure), MEDLINE/PubMed, EMBASE, and The Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials will be searched for studies published until March 2021. The primary outcome is body weight. The secondary outcomes will be body mass index, waist-hip ratio, waist circumference, hip circumference, body fat mass, body fat percentage, and adverse events. RESULTS: This systematic review and meta-analysis will evaluate the effects of cupping therapy for obesity. CONCLUSION: The results of this systematic review and meta-analysis will then be discussed in a related journal for clinicians working with obese patients to apply the interventions in this article.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Asthma is one of the most common chronic airway diseases and is characterized by wheezing, dyspnea, chest tightness, and coughing. These symptoms reduce the patient's quality of life and limit physical activity in daily life. However, there is no systematic review of the efficacy of cupping therapy in the treatment of asthma. To evaluate the efficacy and safety of cupping in the treatment of asthma, we conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of published randomized clinical trials of cupping in the treatment of asthma. METHODS: We will search the following Chinese and English databases: China National Knowledge Infrastructure, China Science and Periodical Database, Wanfang Database, China Biomedical Literature Database, PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library. All of the above electronic databases will be searched from inception to August 22, 2021. In addition, we will manually search for conference papers, ongoing experiments, and internal reports to supplement the studies retrieved via electronic search. We will use the Review Manager 5.4 provided by Cochrane Collaboration Network for statistical analysis. RESULTS: The study will prove the effectiveness and safety of cupping in the treatment of asthma. CONCLUSION: We plan to submit this systematic review to a peer-reviewed journal.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: There are still controversies between the curative effect of acupuncture combined with cupping therapy and western medicine for post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN). Our meta-analysis fully incorporates the research of acupuncture combined with cupping therapy versus Western medicine for PHN, aiming to explore the difference in the efficacy of the 2 therapies, so as to provide guidance for clinical treatment. METHODS: We searched PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library, CNKI, Wanfang, CQVIP, CBM, from establishment of the database to September, 2020. Include studies that are clearly defined as PHN or herpes zoster, and exclude duplicate publications; studies with no full text, incomplete information, or inability to extract data; the definition of exposure is quite different from most literature; animal experiments. RESULTS: The total effective rate (relative ratio [RR] = 1.21, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.12-1.31) and the rate of remarkable effect (RR = 1.46, 95% CI: 1.30-1.63) of acupuncture and moxibustion combined with cupping in the treatment of PHN were significantly higher than that of conventional western medicine. The visual analogue scale score of acupuncture and moxibustion combined with cupping for PHN was significantly lower than that of conventional western medicine treatment (WMD = -1.77, 95% CI [-2.79, -0.75]). In addition, acupuncture and moxibustion combined with cupping therapy significantly reduced the occurrence of PHN compared with conventional western medicine treatment after treatment of acute herpes zoster (RR = 0.30, 95% CI: 0.20-0.45). In order to explore the differences in the efficacy and preventive effects of different types of acupuncture and cupping therapy, we have further conducted a subgroup analysis. CONCLUSION: The effect of acupuncture and moxibustion combined with cupping in the treatment of PHN is significantly higher than that of conventional western medicine, and it can significantly prevent the occurrence of PHN. Chinese medicine should be used more widely in the treatment of PHN.

RESUMO

Cupping therapy is an important part of traditional Chinese medicine, and its efficacy has been gradually accepted and confirmed by modern clinical medicine, but its physiological mechanisms have no consensus. In the present paper, we summarized the related mechanisms from results of both domestic and international researches which include 1) blood circulation promotion theory, 2) neurological reflex theory, 3) gate theory of pain, 4) inflammation-immune reaction theory and 5) skin tension increase theory. We also reviewed progresses of clinical researches about application of cupping therapy to cardiovascular diseases, chronic musculoskeletal pain, migraine and other painful symptoms, as well as arthritis which effects involve the above mentioned blood-circulation promotion, tension-increase, gate theory and inflammation-immune reaction, respectively. We believe that the mechanisms of cupping therapy are not independent and should be explored further from different perspectives.

RESUMO

OBJECTIVE: To compare the clinical efficacy of cupping treatment combined with antibiotics and antibiotics alone for bacterial pneumonia in children. METHODS: A total of 72 children with bacterial pneumonia were randomly divided into an observation group (36 cases, 1 case dropped off) and a control group (36 cases). The children in the control group were treated with intravenous drip of cefodizine sodium [80 mg/(kg•d)] for 7 days. Based on the treatment of the control group, the children in the observation group were treated with cupping treatment on the bladder meridian of the back on the first day and the fourth day of antibiotic treatment; each cupping treatment was given for 5-10 min; the treatment of observation group was given for 7 days. The days for complete fever reduction, TCM syndrome scores and Canadian acute respiratory illness flu scale (CARIFS) scores before and after treatment were observed, and the clinical efficacy was evaluated. RESULTS: The days for complete fever reduction in the observation group were shorter than that in the control group (P<0.05). After treatment, the TCM syndrome scores and CARIFS scores in the two groups were reduced (P<0.05), and the cough score, expectoration score, lung auscultation score of TCM syndrome and cough score, runny nose score and sore throat score of CARIFS in the observation group were lower than those in the control group (P<0.05). The cured rate in the observation group was 97.1% (34/35), which had no significant difference with 91.7% (33/36) in the control group (P>0.05). CONCLUSION: Cupping treatment combined with antibiotics has similar efficacy with antibiotics alone for bacterial pneumonia in children, but shows better effect in shortening the duration of fever and improving pulmonary symptoms.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Peripheral facial paralysis (PFP) is a common clinical neurological disease and the incidence of intractable peripheral facial paralysis is on the rise. Symptoms include crooked mouth and eyes, tearing and shallow nasolabial folds. The disease seriously affects the physical and mental health of patients. At present, a large number of clinical studies have shown that cupping is effective in treating intractable peripheral facial paralysis (IPFP). Therefore, the purpose of this review is to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of cupping in the treatment of refractory peripheral facial paralysis. METHODS: We will conduct a comprehensive and systematic search of relevant documents in the following databases: Medline, PubMed, the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (CENTRAL), Embase, Chinese Biomedical Literatures Database, China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI), Wang Fang Database, Chinese Scientific Journal Database from inception to February 2021 without any language restriction. The 2 reviewers will be independently completed select research, extract data, evaluate research quality and use the Cochrane risk of bias tool to assess methodological quality. Using revman5.4 software for statistical analysis. The degree of heterogeneity will be Determined through heterogeneity test, to definite whether to adopt a random effects model or a fixed-effects model. RESULTS: The protocol for the meta-analysis will systematically evaluate the efficacy and safety of cupping therapy for intractable peripheral facial paralysis patients. CONCLUSION: This study will explore whether or not cupping therapy can be used as one of the non-drug therapies to prevent or treat intractable peripheral facial paralysis.
