Brachialgia paraesthetica nocturna can be relieved by "wet cupping"--results of a randomised pilot study.
Many studies have shown that cupping therapy can relieve pains such as headache, low back pain, brachialgia paraesthetica nocturna, carpal tunnel syndrome, and cervicalgia.
Research at the District Hospital of R-dersdorf, also in Germany, found that Brachialgia paresthetica nocturna (an arm pain experienced at night) could also be relieved by Hijama.
Brachialgia or upper limb pain can be due to pathologies of the joints, soft tissue and to referred pain from nerve compression.
Although many interventions have been investigated, previous systematic reviews (Binder 2005, Gross et al 2007, Hurwitz et al 2008) have investigated a diverse group of conditions additional to non-specific neck pain including radiculopathy, whiplash, and conditions that commonly, though not necessarily, have concomitant neck pain (eg headache, dizziness, brachialgia, back pain, and shoulder pain).
