What is a Bicep Tendon Tear?
The bicep is a medium size muscle on the front of the arm. The bicep has two tendons. The proximal bicep tendon attaches to the shoulder. The distal bicep tendon attaches to the elbow. Both tendons can tear. Tears may be partial or complete.
- Proximal bicep tendon tear. The proximal bicep tendon is the more commonly torn.
- Distal bicep tendon tear. Distal bicep tendon tears are uncommon.
