Biceps Tendinitis
Pain is reported in the region of the anterior shoulder located over the bicipital groove, occasionally radiating down to the elbow.



  • Physical Causes of Bicipital Tendinitis:

          Poor lifting techniques
          Chronic repetitive upper extremity activities (shoulder/elbow flexion)
          Impingement syndrome
          Rotator cuff pathology
          Biceps subluxation
          Shoulder girdle muscle imbalances
          Poor posture
          Overload (usually eccentrically)
          Lack of flexibility/capsular tightness
          Direct trauma
          Multidirectional shoulder instability
          Calcifications of the tendon
          Osteoarthritis and spurring
