I have a torn bicep muscle in my right hand for the last 2 year's  can this be operated and can my arm be normal as before? What are the risks?

Depends: Depends on if it's distal or proximal. If distal, and the laceratus fibrosis is still intact, there is a remote chance that it may work, but likely not. If it's complete with torn laceratus with retraction, you can tenodese (tie down the tendon) to the brachialis muscle, but this is purely cosmetic and essentially 50/50 chance that will work. ...Read more

Whats the difference in feeling: a pulled muscle in the bicep, or a torn ligament in the bicep?

Whats the difference in feeling: a pulled muscle in the bicep, or a torn ligament in the bicep?

Can be hard to tell: The biceps muscle has 2 tendons, one that runs in the shoulder joint (proximal) and one that goes across the elbow joint(distal). Both muscle and tendon tears are painful initially. Muscle tears hurt more in the middle of the arm. The tendon tears tendon to feel better faster, but strength and range of motion are limited. These injuries are best evaluated by a board certified orthopaedic surgeon. ...Read more

What to do if I have problem about my strength in my biceps muscles.?

Several reasons: There are several reasons why this can happen. The most important is do you have a pinched nerve in your neck.

Not deflating...: There is no "stored air" in the muscle to either inflate or deflate. You may have had a partial tear of the muscle belly at that point. See a doctor if you are concerned or if it is painful. ...Read more

Do you think I pulled a muscle if sudden biceps pain?

Do you think I pulled a muscle if sudden biceps pain?

Possibly: It's relatively rare to "pull" the biceps muscle. Strains or tears of the biceps tendons are more likely. The biceps tendons may be injured near the shoulder or near the attachment just past the elbow. The distal tendon injury (past the elbow) often needs urgent evaluation with an orthopedic specialist because surgery is often required to restore adequate strength with turning the forearm. ...Read more
