Biceps Tendon Tear
The biceps tendon connects the biceps muscle to the bone. Normally, the biceps tendon is connected very strongly to the bone. When the biceps tendon tears, it causes the tendon to detach from the bone. Following a biceps tendon tear, the muscle cannot pull on the bone, and certain movements may be weakened and painful.
Depending on the severity of the tear, you might be a candidate for a new breakthrough treatment called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), which may be an alternative treatment to surgery. The diagnosis and treatment course is determines upon the results of an MRI.
