The biceps is a very important muscle in our upper arm that plays an integral role in our function. The muscle runs from the front of the shoulder to the elbow. It has two proximal tendon attachments to the shoulder and one insertion point at the elbow. The function of the biceps is to flex the elbow and to supinate, or rotate, the forearm into a palm up position. It also assists in shoulder flexion, helping to raise the arm forward. One of these two tendons rarely suffers from injury while the other tendon is particularly susceptible to pain, injury and associated shoulder dysfunction! In this article you'll learn why that is, as well as the risk factors, treatment, and prevention strategies to take care of that pesky biceps pain. Follow along in this article as we demonstrate some awesome biceps tendon pain exercises!
