View Full Version : biceps tear advice

05-29-2009, 08:30 AM
I think I tore my proximal bicpes tendon doing weighted pull ups. No bruise but there is a visible change in the shape (no bulge, it actually flattened the top of my bicep). I am going to see an ART specialist today, and maybe an ortho. Does anyone have experience with Active Release techniques? Is it worth it? I want to rehabilitate w/o surgery and I don't think it is a full rupture.

Are these types of injuries unsual for the 40 plus BB or am I just falling apart? I have torn nearly every mucle in my body, except for lats and traps? I don't train heavy anymore and do movements slowly.

sounds like you may have some nutritional issues to resolve.
ARTis great for injuries. but acute injuries like a rupture, not so much.
see an ortho, have an MRI, understand your diagnosis and options.
ART cant fix broken.
