CEP-COMBO

Overview

 

Cep Combo is designed to reduce the muscle tension in the bicep and tricep muscles that control the movements of the elbow.  

By reducing the tension in the upper arm muscle groups, you will be able to treat and improve the symptoms that are exhibited with a variety of upper arm and elbow pains.  These include, bicep and tricep tendonopathies, cramping, strains, arm weakness and general pain & tightness.  

Set the Beartrap up with a combination of the cone and ball on each side.  

    1. Place one handle of the beartrap between the opposite upper arm to be treated and your thorax, so that the beartrap extends across your chest.
    2. Place the arm to be treated inside the Beartrap so that the trigger cones and balls are on the triceps and biceps.
    3. Using the opposite hand, grab the handle and pull towards the body.
    4. The combination setup of the ball and cone provides a stable set-up to easily treat the triceps and biceps.
    5.  The Cep combo can also be performed with just one trigger ball or cone for a more intense treatment but will require more control from the user.
    6. Using the stopper on one side enables treatment to be performed unilaterally on the opposing side.  For example, this will assist if you are trying to target just the bicep muscles and not the triceps.

Treatment Techniques

 

Positions

– elbow flexion: arm flexed at the elbow joint.

– elbow extension: arm straight at the elbow joint

Lock-on

-The lock-on is best performed with a ball and cone set-up to increase stability when hands are removed from handles.

Flexion

– Perform the movements with your elbow flexed so that your hand is near your shoulder.  This will put the triceps muscle on stretch and will create a more intense treatment through these muscles. 

Extension

– Perform the movements with your arm extended out straight. This will put the bicep muscles on stretch and will create a more intense treatment on these muscles.

Extend and flex the elbow

– Perform the movements while continuing to extend and flex the elbow.  This creates contraction and relaxation effects on the muscle during treatment.  This creates intermittent and varied treatment along the length of the muscles.

Anatomy

 

Biceps

This muscle group is located at the front of the upper arm and acts to flex the elbow joint so that the hand moves closer to the shoulder.  The two heads of the biceps muscle (long and short) originate from the upper part of the scapula and join to form a single muscle that attaches to the radius bone located in the forearm.

Triceps

This muscle group is located at the back of the upper arm and acts to extend the elbow so that the arm straightens.  The three heads of the triceps (long, medial and lateral) muscle originate from the humerus and scapula bones at the back of the shoulder and insert on the olecranon process of the Ulna bone (the pointy part of the elbow).

Recommended Exercise Program

 

Self-treatment of the muscular system creates micro-damage and micro-tears within the muscle.  This is completely normal and helps the muscle relax, improve blood flow and overall function. Working out in the gym or performing exercise also creates these micro tears and damage to the body in the hope that the body will respond positively by getting stronger, greater endurance, increase power (speed + strength) which are all dependent on what type of stimulus you provide. The side effect of creating micro-tearing and micro-damage is that it can create post-treatment soreness (pain the following or following days).

Start off with a modest amount of treatment and see how the body responds.  Build up as the body allows.

If the pain on the post-treatment soreness is significant, give the muscle another day or two to recover before continuing further treatment.  However, if the following day, the muscle feels much better and only mild amounts of post-treatment soreness exist, then increase the timeframe or pressure of treatment.

Biofeedback

Muscular biofeedback is the body’s amazing ability to provide instantaneous feedback to the brain about which muscles are tight and where the treatment needs to be focused.  As massage creates micro-tears and micro-damage, the sensation is experienced as pain. The tighter the muscle, the more tearing or damage occurs and the pain sensation feels greater in this area.  Conversely, if the muscle is not as tight, there is less pain experienced when treating the muscle. Biofeedback is a great way to determine which muscles are tight and what areas need more work.
