Biceps Tendonitis - Causes, Symptoms and treatment of Biceps Tendonitis

Inflammation of a bicep tendon due to overuse or injury is known as Biceps Tendonitis. Tendons connect a muscle to a bone so that when a muscle contracts, the bone is pulled by the tendon.

Causes of Biceps Tendonitis

If a tendon becomes strained, stretched, overused or damaged it will become inflamed. Supraspinatus tendonitis is one of the most common types of tendonitis, and is caused by inflammation of the tendon that runs across the top of the shoulder to move the arm away from the body.

Symptoms of Biceps Tendonitis

The tendon swells, becomes acutely painful and does not work effectively.

Biceps Tendonitis Investigations

Sometimes tiny flecks of bone form in the tendon if it has been inflamed for a long time, and these can be seen on X-ray.

Treatment of Biceps Tendonitis

Rest of the affected part, which may be strapped, bandaged, splinted or plastered to ensure there is no movement. Anti-inflammatory medicines and steroid injections may also be used along with physiotherapy, which is particularly valuable on return to work to prevent a recurrence of the problem.

Complications: None significant.

Prognosis: Good.
