Random pain in my upper tricep yesterday. No exercise, throbbing pain on original site, and now up through top of shoulder too. What could issue be?

Get checked: Could be referred pain from the joint- labral tear etc - if it lasts more than 3-4 weeks and does not respond to simple self treatment like Ibuprofen then see a specialist

Rest, ice & NSAID's: Your symptoms suggest tendinitis & lateral epicondylitis as possible diagnosis. Advise to rest your arm, ice the area & take 1-2 weeks otc aleve/naproxen 225 mg twice daily with food unless contraindicated based on your medical conditions. Alternative is advil/ibuprofen 400-600 mg 3x/day with meals depending on your weight. See orthopedist if no better or symptoms worsen. Pls rest arm

1yr ago removed implant for distal humerus elbow fracture. Arm partial stiff & triceps atrophy, no progress. Continue physio, try surgery, or no hope?

Get 2nd opinion: Elbow fractures that require orif (open reduction and internal fixation) are prone to elbow stiffness. If p.T./ bracing (dyna splint to improve extension) is not improving your motion consider seeing an ors who is proficient @ elbow arthroscopy. Arthroscopic release can improve elbow motion dramatically in some pts. It can be technically demanding so speak w/ your ors and see if this is an option.

Can snapping triceps syndrome be fixed?

Can snapping triceps syndrome be fixed?

Yes.: Snapping triceps is a relativelyuncommoncondition that occurs when the distal portion of the triceps dislocates over the medial or lateral epicondyle of the elbow, during flexion or extension. Usually the ulnar nerve is involved as well. Avoid activity that aggravates itm (e.g. Pushups & weight lifting) and take nsaids. If symptoms persist, surgery can help.

What is the difference between the brachialis and triceps?

What is the difference between the brachialis and triceps?

Antagonist muscles: Both the brachialis and the triceps are located above the elbow in the arm. They are described as antagonist muscles as they perform opposite functional motions about the arm. The triceps extends the arm while the brachialis flexes the arm. (picture depicts the biceps which is right next to the brachialis).

What exercises use the tricep muscles?

What exercises use the tricep muscles?

Many will: Pushup, dips, press downs, french press. .. really any exercise where you extend your arm out - as in "press" your hand out - will engage the triceps. Even planks will do so, much less so if you "lock" your arms out - as at that point much of the stress going into the elbow joint (aka bad) rather than the surrounding muscles.

How can you heal a torn tricep muscle?

How can you heal a torn tricep muscle?

Depends where torn: A torn triceps at the attachment of the muscle to bone (the tendon) needs to be re-attached through surgery. If the muscle is torn in the body of the muscle then surgery is less successful. Typically the torn muscle will scar down and after it heals you can do rehab and physical therapy. There is nothing you can do to accelerate the healing other than rest the muscle and do not overuse it.

Could bicep and tricep curls stunt growth?

Could bicep and tricep curls stunt growth?

In children?: It is safe for pediatric athletes to lift weights. Excessively heavy weight or improper technique can damage growth plates and therefore attention to technique and gym safety is important. A trainer who knows about pediatric weightlifting programs may be helpful to design a program for your child that is safe, yet effective.

What does a sharp pain running from tricep to neck mean?

What does a sharp pain running from tricep to neck mean?

Pinched nerve: Usually pain will'run' from neck to triceps area. I would see an orthopedic surgeon for examination. U may have a cervical disc abnormality which is pressing on a nerve. Other possibilities can be excluded by examination and imaging studies. Best of luck!

Will woking out on chest, biceps and triceps help gain weight?

Will woking out on chest, biceps and triceps help gain weight?

It should.: If you're referring to weight training to build these muscle groups, then yes, you should gain weight. Muscles will hypertrophy (grow) from weight training, and that growth should result in a weight gain. Keep in mind that you may need to hit the weights for at least 6 weeks, before appreciating any gain in muscle weight.
