Learn About Biceps Tendonitis
Physical Therapy is often the first line non surgical conservative treatment option for many people that develop biceps tendonitis. Physical therapy can help reduce pain and inflammation while improving your range of motion and strength. Biceps tendonitis is an inflammation of the upper biceps tendon. The long head of the biceps tendon connects the biceps muscle to the bone by attachment to the glenoid labrum. Biceps tendinitis is a common problem that often results in pain in the front of the shoulder and weakness. It can often be relieved with rest and medication in cases of mild tendonitis, but in more severe cases, surgery may be needed to repair the tendon.
The biceps muscle is located in the front of your upper arm. The muscle attaches to the shoulder blade bone at two points. The long head attaches to the top of the shoulder socket (glenoid). The short head attaches to a boney part on the shoulder blade called the coracoid process. Biceps tendon inflammation is a common problem that can occur when the tendon becomes overstretched and overused. The tendon may become swollen and inflamed in its early stages. As tendinitis progresses, the tendon sheath (covering) can become thicker. The tendon itself often becomes thicker or larger. As the injury progresses, the tendon can become red in color due to the inflammation. At times the tendon may be severely damaged and can can result in a partial or complete tear. A complete tendon tear will cause a very noticeable deformity of the arm.
The most common cause of biceps tendon damage can be from a lifetime of normal activities. As we get older, everyday wear and tear can cause our tendons to weaken over time. This degeneration can be exacerbated by overuse – repeating the same shoulder movements over and over again. Many jobs and daily household chores can cause these overuse injuries. Exercises that require repetitive overhead motion, such as swimming, tennis, and baseball can puts a lot of stress on the shoulders. You many feel pain or tenderness in the front of the shoulder, which gets worse when doing overhead activities. There can be a snapping sound or sensation in the shoulder from time to time.

As a lifelong athlete, I’ve experienced a wide array of sports-related injuries. In fact, my interest in this profession was sparked at just eighteen years-old, when I received physical therapy for a shoulder injury incurred while playing football. Later, I achieved my Doctorate of Physical Therapy (DPT) from the University of the Sciences of Philadelphia.
I employ a holistic, evidence-based approach to my treatment, taking a full assessment of your status and needs to design the perfect plan for your body and circumstances. I use research-driven methods to help you achieve your physical therapy goals. I am detail-oriented, innovative, highly knowledgeable in biomechanics, and a fantastic problem-solver. I operate on three principles: honesty, perseverance, and resilience.
The most rewarding part of my job is helping others reclaim their health and wellness. I love to use my experience and background to support and guide my patients as they commit to their recovery. And I can’t wait to facilitate this journey for you, bestowing upon you the right exercises and information to carry you to success!
Tendinopathy, Tendinitis, and Tendinosis
Tendinopathy is a condition of overuse that causes pain within and around the affected tendons. This happens when your body can’t properly repair damaged cells and tissue. This condition is causes tendon disorganization and thickening, which in turn damages the tendon’s physical properties, making it more susceptible to fatigue and resulting in pain.
Tendinitis is usually painful, which also has to do with overuse, irritation, strain, degeneration, and poor mechanics.
Tendinosis refers to Degenerated and disorganized collagen without signs of inflammation.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is useful in assessing the overall damage to the rotator cuff. MRI may be helpful in providing more accurate information about cuff tears, including partial versus complete tears, extent and size of the tear(s), location, and degree of retraction. In cases of chronic rotator cuff pathology, the tendons can be assessed for the presence of fatty degenerative changes in a series of T1-weighted sagittal image sequences.
Let Our Therapist Treat Your Biceps Tendonitis
Biceps tendonitis typically responds well to simple treatments, such as rest and ice. Please take a break. The first step to recovery is to avoid pain-causing activities. Apply cold compresses for 20 minutes several times a day to keep swelling down.Do not put ice directly on the skin. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are medications that can reduce pain and swelling. Steroid injections such as cortisone are a common treatment for a variety of medical conditions.
Physical therapy may help repair the damage. Specific stretching and strengthening exercises can help restore range of motion and strengthen the shoulder. Studies have found that eccentric exercise, is an effective part of an exercise program for treating individuals with tendinopathy. We have one of the most popular treatment centers in the heart of Delray Beach, FL. We provide the best biceps tendonitis and tendinopathy physical therapy.
