I gave you the more common diagnosis (degeneration/pain in the biceps tendon), but if your diagnosis is correct then your pain is coming from the ligament that holds that tendon in its groove in the humerus.
Honestly whilst he/she may well be right, I for one would be looking for a second opinion since it can be hard to correctly differentiate between the two and some therapists will look for the more complex problems and eschew the simple, because it makes them feel geeky, lol. I know, I was once like that.
But occams razor lets us know that the simpler explanation is ususally the correct one.
Look on youtube for biceps tendonitis tests and see if you can recreate them.
The diagnosis of ligament tear involves feeling the long head of biceps tendon jumping out of the groove. Can you feel this?
How was the diagnosis made? Purely physical examination or was there any sort of soft tissue inmaging?
Sorry about late reply bushy, dont think i dont appreciate your input!
its about 7 weeks now, still not better. you could be right i could be misdiagnosed.
I’ve been trying to read up on tendonitus, kind of worried as thats what owen hargreaves has in his knees…
It was a physical examinaton only, i’ll ring him tomorrow and suggest tendonitus and see what he says.
How would you suggest i go about rehabilation of this?
