Shaun White is now covered in black and blue polka dots thanks to an alternative medicine for pain management and rehabilitation called ‘cupping therapy’.
The process involves placing various cups on the skin and creating a suction that supposedly helps with pain and muscle recovery.
Call me a hater, but I don’t understand how bruising your skin with pancake-sized welts helps your muscles recover.
Maybe it’s just one of things that if it works, it works, ya know?
Shaun isn’t getting any younger, and the almost-35 year old is hoping to make his 5th Olympic team in 2022.
Hell, I guess if I was 35 and still working my ass off to compete at a world-class athletic level I’d be trying everything and anything as well!
