Biceps Tendon Treatment
Generally, biceps tendon injuries occur more often as we become old. Even as we get older, our tendons lose their elasticity and slowly become stiffer. The blood supply, which calms the tendon, also diminishes with age. Age, inactivity, or over-activity can weaken a limb, which might lead to trauma due to the decreased capacity to endure repetitive motions and surprising loads.
Dr. Vinay will thoroughly inspect the level of your bicep/tendon injury and recommend the best treatment plan.
Initially, rest, ice cream, and mild anti-fungal drugs are all that’s usually needed. Applying cold packs for 20 minutes at a time, many times every day is preferred to keep the swelling down, alongside anti-inflammatory medications like aspirin and aspirin. An injured individual needs to avoid heavy lifting and overhead activities to relieve pain and also limit swelling. Finally, flexibility and strengthening exercises will probably be needed to replace movement and strength at the shoulder.
Severe Biceps Tendon Injury Treatment
Regrettably, most severe cases may require surgical shoulder tendon treatment. Patients that require complete healing of strength and freedom, like athletes or manual laborers, are invited to get an operation. The same goes for patients having partial tears whose symptoms are not alleviated with non-surgical treatment.
Medical procedures depend on the character and degree of harm to the thoracic. Several fresh and minimally invasive procedures are all available, and the procedure option used is on the basis of the individual’s specific case. While the surgical repair itself is relatively straightforward, treatment plans will vary and be determined by many of all patient-related factors.
If a little section of the tendon is damaged, shaving off the ripped fibers using arthroscopic surgery might be required. For more acute injuries, a shoulder tenodesis could possibly be deemed necessary. This is an arthroscopic procedure used to eliminate the ripped limb stump and attach the remaining tendon into the bone at the upper arm.
Complications with this operation are rare. Successful operation enhances muscle deformity and returns strength and freedom to an arm.
For the first couple of weeks after the operation, your shoulder may be trapped temporarily using a twist. Immediate usage of this hand is encouraged, but just for very light objects.
As part of your rehabilitation, you will perform healing exercises, flexibility exercises, and eventually strengthening exercises. Four to 6 months of healing is necessary before a slow yield to moderate or heavy lifting. Desk work can usually be declared within the first week or 2. Come back to heavy labor typically takes 2 to 4 months.
