Ruptured Distal Bicep Tendon - NYC

Ruptured my bicep tendon today at the distal insertion while doing Scott curls. Anyone have recommendations for a good therapist to rehab with in New York City? Advice that hasn’t already been covered in the forums on this subject? Regrets that you may have if you had the same injury?

I reviewed the other threads already and am looking for any new advice. Thank you.

A full distal rupture(as in the tendon detatched from its insertion point on the radius or the tendon itself tore completely). So your biceps has rolled up/moved up and there is a noticeable large gap at the distal section of your anterior humerus. SURGERY should be your first line of action, not a rehab therapist.

Correct, Egg Head. I already have the surgeon and surgery lined up. Just planning ahead.

Not familiar with anyone in general let alone in NYC. But good luck with the procedure. It’s the right first step and many who opt for surgery eventually come back and surpass their previous status.

Tore mine off a year ago deadlifting… It is now stronger than before I tore it. I rehabed it myself. Good luck. Try doing a search for Distal bicep tedon rupture forum on google… Lots of good information in there. I was agressive with my rehab. I don’t do alternate grip deads anymore either.
