Objective: Case reports of a patient suffering from biceps brachii spasticity and pain accompanied by limited range of motion in flexion and extension.
Clinical features: Patient presented with right arm pain at the glenohumeral area and the elbow. Patient was assessed and treated accordingly. There was glenohumeral pain and muscle fatigue from overuse.
Intervention and outcome: A treatment with an instrument generating vibration within specific frequencies to facilitate or inhibit voluntary muscles. The treatment resulted in pain relief and normal range of motion.
Conclusion: This case report describes the use of a new technology specific to facilitation and inhibition of voluntary muscles with subjective and symptomatic improvements.
