Distal Biceps Tendon Partial Tear
Lateral epicondylitis, also known as tennis elbow, lateral elbow pain, archer’s elbow, epitrochlear bursitis and shooter’s elbow, is a common source of pain in the elbow. It refers to the damage in the form of small tears in the lateral part of the elbow where the tendons attach to the bone from outside of the joint. It is common in people over the age of 30.
Many patients with tennis elbow run away from surgery and steroid injections. At Round Rock Disc and Nerve Center, we offer an effective, non-invasive alternative to steroid injections and surgery. Our procedures treat all the underlying damages that cause the elbow pain. We use regenerative therapy and our advanced form of PRP alongside other regenerative procedures.
This is also referred to as climber’s elbow, little league elbow, pitcher’s elbow, hand shaking politician’s elbow, and rowing elbow. Medically, it is referred to as epicondylitis. Golfer’s Elbow is a form of tendonitis where the inner side of the elbow becomes inflamed. The tendons that are attached to the joints and the muscle and bones in the forearm become inflamed.
Golfer’s Elbow results from the damage to the tendons and muscles that control fingers and wrist. Excess and continuous involvement of the muscles in the forearm or forceful finger and wrist movements cause pain and inflammation in the medial epicondyle of the elbow. Continual swinging, gripping, or flexing creates pulls and micro tears in the tendons, which can result in golfer’s elbow, and can lead to the formation of calcium deposits and scar tissues. Other activities such as hammering, painting, moving the mouse on a computer, chopping wood, and cooking can lead to injury along with athletics.
Distal Biceps Tendon Partial Tear
The bicep muscle helps to keep the shoulder steady. It also assists in rotating the forearm and bending the elbow. A tendon that holds the muscle and bone together is found at the end of the bicep. The biceps tendons attach the bicep muscle from the shoulder to the elbow. A tear on this tendon causes a loss of strength in the arm, which ultimately leads to inability to turn the arm forcefully from the palms downwards and upwards. The tendon tear can either be complete or partial. A complete tear can split the tendon in two detached sections, but a partial tear does not split the tendon entirely. A distal biceps tendon tear may arise as a result due to heavy resistance used to forcefully bend the elbow or as a result of heavy resistance forced to straighten the elbow.
Distal biceps tendon tear typically occurs as a result of sudden injury and is not a result of other medical conditions. The tear can occur during heavy lifting without bending the elbows. In a situation where the elbow joints are forcefully straightened the distal tendon gets separated from the bicep. Distal biceps tendon tear is mostly common among men who are 30 years of age and above. Those who smoke cigarettes are at a higher risk for distal biceps tendon tears. This is because cigarettes affect the nutrition in the tendon while corticosteroids increase weakness in the muscles and tendons.
