Elbow

What is it?

The biceps tendon can become detached from the insertion at your elbow. This often follows a sudden contraction of the biceps muscle, with a bent elbow and rotated forearm. It can either happen following trauma or from wear and tear of the tendon over time.

Symptoms

You may feel a pop or snapping sensation at the elbow or notice a ‘pop-eye deformity’. This is where the muscle bunches up and causes a large painful bulge in your upper arm. This can also cause weakness of the arm, particularly on rotational or twisting activities.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, book an appointment.
