Working on muscles is an important part of treatment. Soft tissue techniques are used in the treatment of carpal tunnel, tennis or golfer's elbow, trigger points and more. Some techniques Dr. LeBeau uses include Graston, Active Release Technique (ART), and a series of specific stretches.
The rotator cuff is made up of 4 different muscles. Their job is to stabilize the shoulder. We see rotator cuff injuries most commonly in repetitive sports.
Dr. LeBeau targets your limitations using a combination of contraction and relaxation of both agonist and antagonist muscles. PNF stretching is capable of producing greater improvement in flexibility compared to other techniques.
Agonist and Antagonist Muscles:
Agonist works with the muscle, and the antagonist is the muscle working against it in a contraction. Example: Bicep curl, the agonist is the bicep and the antagonist is the tricep.
PNF: Proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation
1. Increase Circulation
3. Increase Range of Motion
4. Reduce Stress
5. Alleviate lower back pain

Dr. LeBeau uses a technique from Motion Palpation Institute. Motion palpation is used to locate joint dysfunction within the spinal column and extremities.
Stabilization of a joint is important in preventing and/or rehabbing an injury. Dr. LeBeau specifically designs functional exercises to target your problem areas in the body.
