Often occurring during strength training and resistance workouts, bicep and tricep ruptures are a pretty common injury, occurring when the tendons in the muscle are completely torn.
Tenderness in the shoulder region, sharp and sudden pain, a snapping sensation and accompanying sound, bruising from the upper part of the arm down to the elbow, weakness in the arm, and discomfort when working out the arms and lifting heavy items.
Our therapists start out by showing you how to rest your shoulder so it can heal, while you use other parts of your body for everyday tasks. We may also use ice therapy to relieve tension in the area, before jumping into a series of exercises that strengthen the muscles surrounding the injured biceps and triceps. For long term health of your elbow, we also assess your posture to make it is not the cause of your elbow pain.
