Bicep tendonitis develops when a tendon in the biceps muscle swells and becomes inflamed. It usually occurs with other problems with the shoulder, such as dislocation, impingement, or arthritis.

Rupture of the distal biceps tendon is an increasingly frequent injury sustained predominantly by middle aged males. Despite the prevalence of sport in this age group, little is known regarding return to sport outcomes following surgery.

A fractured clavicle, or fractured collarbone, is a common sports injury that generally occurs from an impact to the shoulder of a fall on an outstretched arm. These fractures may be partial or complete and often require surgical repair or immobilization while they heal. It's important to work closely with your physician and physical therapist to design a clavicle fracture rehabilitation program that is specific to your injury, fitness level, and lifestyle.
