The orthopedic specialists of The Shoulder, Elbow, Wrist and Hand Center at Mercy Medical Center in Baltimore, provide expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of bicep and tricep tears.
The biceps and triceps are the two main arm muscles. The bicep is located in front of the upper arm and the tricep is located behind the upper arm between the shoulder and elbow. Tendons from each of these muscles attach to bone. The bicep and tricep tendons can be torn from a fall, lifting heavy objects, overuse or repetitive motion.
Symptoms of bicep and tricep tears include:
An orthopedic specialist can diagnose bicep and tricep tears by conducting a physical exam. MRIs are used to view the location and severity of the tears. X-rays may be taken to rule out other conditions.
Non surgical treatment for bicep and tricep tears can include:
When non-surgical options do not provide relieve for a bicep or tricep tear, surgery is performed to anchor the tendon back to the bone.
