Biceps Tendonitis / Bursitis

Biceps tendonitis is inflammation in the main tendon that attaches the top of the biceps muscle to the shoulder. Tendons become inflamed for a variety of reasons, and the action of pulling the muscle becomes irritating. If the normal, smooth gliding motion of the tendon is impaired, the tendon will become inflamed and movement will become painful.

The most common cause is overuse from certain types of work or sports activities. Biceps tendonitis may develop gradually from the effects of wear and tear, or it can happen suddenly from a direct injury. The tendon may also become inflamed in response to other problems in the shoulder, such as rotator cuff tears, impingement, or instability.

Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa. Normally, the bursa provides a slippery surface with almost no friction. A problem arises when a bursa becomes inflamed. The bursa loses its gliding capabilities and becomes increasingly irritated when moved.

Traditional Treatment Options

Many Tendonitis/Bursitis injuries are misdiagnosed and mistreated due to a poor understanding of what occurs to the tendon/bursa after it becomes injured or inflamed. This leads to expensive diagnostics and imaging. Often these costly procedures do not change the course of treatment. Many treatment outcomes are inconsistent and often take several weeks to months to show noticeable improvements.
