It was hypothesized that there is a significant statistical difference before and after cupping, and cupping is effective in lessening and desensitizing chronic pain among lower and upper back pain subjects. Subjects were drawn on convenience sampling basis, where 95 males and females were recruited for the purpose of investigation.

It was found after the study that cupping therapy as an alternative medical technique is an effective and fruitful enough either for the management of upper and lower back pain or the control of such annoying medical conditions.|
