Tendon Rupture Orthopedic Surgery
Biceps tendon repair
Whenever someone tells you to flex, you probably lift up one or both of your arms and curl them inwards to bulk up the muscles. The main muscle you typically observe in this pose is the biceps.
The biceps is is the long muscle running along the front side of your arm from your shoulder to your elbow. It’s the power behind many of the bending or lifting motions you use with your arm.
An injury to the biceps is a big deal since it’s so important to the use of your arm. A sore biceps is a normal part of life, especially after physical activity, but serious injuries require medical attention. One injury that can damage the biceps is a biceps tendon rupture.
