Protection: There are two tendons if one ruptures then you will have a weakness in that arm from now on. Surgical replacement of the ruptured tendon is sometimes possible and you should see an orthopedic surgeon for this. Gradually and slowly strengthing the remaining tendon with low weight exercises may help prevent its rupture in the future. Always avoid lifting very heavy objects to prevent rupture. ...Read more
Weakness: Acutely pain and swelling with some bruising. Patient will have significant weakness of supination of the forearm and some loss of elbow flexion strength. You may see the biceps retract proximally and bunch up in the upper arm, especially with attempted use. This is a surgical problem see a hand surgeon as soon as possible. ...Read more
Depends: If biceps torn proximal in shoulder, would leave alone. Shouldn't anticipate significant functional loss, but may have popeye deformity. If distal, repair not likely. Reconstruction with some sort of interposition graft required. Many patients report improved pain with function, but does not correct deformity, and strength improvements less predictable. Tough problem to have. Good luck! ...Read more
See an upper ex spec: A six month old proximal bicep reptile can be ignored or fixed by an upper extremity specialist. The distal biceps rupture is a more difficult problem and you need to find someone who has performed tendon grafts. ...Read more
Could I have torn my rotator cuff at the same time as a distal bicep tendon rupture? I had surgery for the rupture, now need MRI for the shoulder
Unlikely: A ruptured biceps tendon@ the elbow is usually known... Eccentric contraction of the muscle w/ a feeling of a ' pop' or tear is commonplace. Rotator cuff tears occurring @ the same time is conceivable but very unlikely. More likely you had a rct already and was 'picked up' by your ors @ exam/mri. The "long head" of the biceps in the shoulder can tear in chronic rot. Cuff tears. Gl! ...Read more

You could: Tendon needs reattachment other wise will not improve strength and also can develop atrophy see an orthopedic doc. ...Read more
Possibly: Prolozone causes repair and tightening of the lax structures, partially torn connective tissue and ligaments. Prolozone halts the pain/inflammation cycle. This allows for better circulation, increased blood flow carrying nutrition, and hydration of the damaged tissues. This allows for a healing environment within the joint to develop and results in increased range of motion and decreased pain. ...Read more
I had small partially ruptured biceps tendon, MRI after a year: subakromio-subdeltoidni burzitis. Can I carry around 5-10kg backpack with this injury?
Yes: Carrying a backpack on your shoulder should not cause a problem with the biceps tendon, although the act of bringing it up onto your shoulder might. I would not hesitate to discuss the specifics of your case with your orthopedist. ...Read more

Are there any dangers [ie tendon rupture/or further damage] of having steriod injection for chronic pain caused by degenerative changes in spine?
Tendon injuries are very catastrophic. Usually occurs when the foot is in a fixed plantargrade position and the tibia (shinbone) externally rotates rapidly, and the foot does not release from its flexed state.
Injuries for tendon ruptures also take the longest to resolve, which can be from 8-20 weeks, depending on the amount and time of damage to the tendon. ...Read more
Discontinuity: A tendon rupture occurs when the structure of the tendon becomes discontinuous. The tendon connects a muscle to a bone allowing the contractile force of the muscle to be transmitted to the bone allowing for motion to occur. In a tendon rupture, this mechanism can be disrupted. ...Read more
Achilles tendon injuries are very catastrophic. Usually occurs when the foot is in a fixed plantargrade position and the tibia (shinbone) externally rotates rapidly, and the foot does not release from its flexed state.
Injuries for achilles tendon ruptures also take the longest to resolve, which can be from 8-20 weeks, depending on the amount and time of damage to the tendon. ...Read more
