Gout is the most common known form of arthritis you can get. Hippocrates (Buqrat, 460-377B.C), is considered one of the most prominent figures in the history of medicine, and he referred to gout as “the unwalkable disease”.
The word “gout” is derived from the Latin word “gutta” which means a drop in Latin; it is a theory where most people believed that gout could be caused by a poison falling drop by drop into your joints. Gout, as we all understand it today, is a clinical syndrome: an inflammatory response to monosodium urate crystals, which occur when you have high levels of uric acid in your bloodline.
Gout mainly affects middle-aged to older men as well as postmenopausal women. This happens when you have Monosodium Urate (MSU) crystals in synovial fluid or tissue, particularly the metatarsophalangeal joint of the first toe is often involved, but tarsal joints, ankles, hands and knees are also commonly affected.
Nowadays, with modern technology in medicine, the removal of crystals of uric acid is known to be the first factor in the pathophysiology of patients. Pharmaceutical drugs that have proven to be effective against acute gout are Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or colchicines. The standard options to prevent gout are drugs like Allopurinol or sulphinpyrazone. But all of the above-stated drugs exhibit systemic severe side effects.
How can Cupping Therapy help with Gout?
Cupping is used all over the therapeutic regimen of the Unani system of medicine with high acceptance in Egypt and Arab countries. Cupping is a treatment for various inflammatory and painful conditions like sciatica, gout, rheumatoid arthritis, pain in your knee, removal of deep swelling, disease of liver and skin and many more.
Cupping mainly acts by increasing blood circulation and relieving painful muscle tension in your body; it also improves microcirculation, promoting capillary endothelial cell repair, accelerating granulation, and angiogenesis in the regional tissues. This treatment is known as the best deep tissue massage, which normalises the patient’s functional state and progressive muscle relaxation. In the Unani system of Medicine, this effectively treats diseases with different etiologies and pathogenesis.
