Biceps Tendon Rupture

Biceps Tendon Rupture

A biceps tendon rupture can significantly impact daily life, causing pain and limiting arm movement. This condition occurs when the tendon connecting the biceps muscle to the shoulder or elbow tears partially or completely. Whether resulting from sudden trauma or gradual wear and tear, prompt medical attention is essential for accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment.

Treatment options vary depending on the severity of the rupture. Partial tears or less active individuals may find relief through non-surgical methods such as rest, ice, physical therapy, and medication. However, complete tears or those requiring full arm function often necessitate surgical repair. During this procedure, the torn tendon is reattached to its original location, typically using sutures or anchors, to restore stability and strength to the arm.

Rehabilitation is a critical aspect of recovery. Our team of physical therapists works closely with patients to develop personalized rehabilitation plans. These plans typically include a combination of stretching, strengthening, and range-of-motion exercises tailored to each individual’s needs and goals. Through consistent rehabilitation efforts, patients can regain strength, flexibility, and mobility in the affected arm, facilitating a return to normal activities.
