You may have seen patients in the clinic exercising with cups on their bodies and wondered about this treatment. Myofascial decompression or “cup therapy” has been gaining popularity since Michael Phelps was seen sporting his round marks at the 2016 Olympics. Myofascial decompression is a modern adaptation of a form of ancient Chinese medicine. In our physical therapy practice, we use the cups over restricted areas in the muscle during specific movement and exercise in order to correct movement dysfunction. The cups provide a negative pressure to decompress the area, and when coupled with movement, the treatment can retrain the body's movement patterns.
This past weekend, Family Physical Therapy sent 3 of our physical therapists to University of California San Francisco Medical Center to learn the science and latest research behind this treatment that is gaining so much momentum within professional sports! After learning about recent MRI studies that support the use of cups for reducing trigger points and improving mobility, Brett, Marcia and Ila spent the day learning specific movement-based techniques to use with the cups.
At Family Physical Therapy, we believe it is important to stay educated on the latest medical research in the fields of exercise and physiology. Cup therapy provides us another tool to treat muscular and fascial dysfunction.
A special thank you to Bay Area Sports Performance and Rehabilitation and Christopher Daprato for a great class on Myofascial Decompression Techniques.
Megan is working hard on the road to recovery after her ACL surgery. To keep things exciting we like to incorporate the things patients love (in this case volleyball) into the rehabilitation process to keep it fun and stay focused on the end goals. She has been incredibly positive and is making great progress towards returning to her sport (and not to mention she also does great hair!)!!! #VolleyballRehab #SportsPT #FamilyPT
There is no doubt that having strong and stable hips is one key to moving well. Adequate hip mobility and strength helps keep your knees, back, and even ankles from taking on abnormal stresses with the movements we do every day. Of course there are many components to moving optimally, but we take our glute strengthening seriously not only in only in practice, but in life and sport.

You may have seen the newest member of our team behind the front desk in our Roseville office. We would like to extend our welcome to Roxanne, who joined our team 3 months ago as our billing facilitator. Roxanne grew up in this area, and originally worked in the title and escrow industry. She is the mother of two daughters, one of whom was born prematurely with a medical condition. After her kids got older, her personal experience with her daughter inspired her to go back to school to work in the medical field by advocating for patients by communicating with their insurances to have their medical claims paid. She decided to go back to school to study medical billing.
On her free time, Roxanne enjoys gardening, hiking in Northern California, rock hunting, doing home improvement projects, and visiting Disneyland.
We are very excited to have Roxanne join FPT's team! She is already working so hard for our patients, and we are very thankful for her!
At Family Physical Therapy we love helping patients who are recovering from orthopedic surgery reach their goals, and return to their sports and recreational activities. Sustaining an injury that requires surgery can seem devastating, but we believe taking a team approach with your surgeon, physicians, other therapists, as well as any trainers or coaches who are involved can provide the best results and recovery.
Our physical therapist, Ila Suplizio, PT, DPT and Teresa have been working hard together after Teresa's foot surgery. Teresa has put in 100% of her effort into every PT session, and we were so happy when she sent us pictures of her now independently exercising at the gym. Success stories of people returning to exercise after surgeries are so rewarding to us. Thank you for sharing, Teresa! You are a superstar!
Pediatric physical therapy can help children and young adults with physical impairments gain movement, independence, and function throughout all stages of development.

Ila and Andrea have been working together to maximize Andrea’s independence by identifying alternative ways to achieve daily tasks. Our entire staff has enjoyed seeing Andrea’s smiling face as she worked hard to reach her goal.
Congratulations on reaching your goals, Andrea! You are a superstar!
