Best Treatment for a Biceps Tendon Rupture/Tear
Once we have determined you’ve experienced a biceps tendon rupture or tear, we will assess the severity of the injury. If the tear isn’t particularly severe, it may be treated non-surgically with a variety of therapies. These may include rest, ice, physical therapy, medication to reduce pain and swelling, and other treatments to help you recover over a period of months.
Unfortunately, many tears do not heal well on their own or are serious enough to require surgery to regain arm strength and function by reattaching the tendon to the bone at the elbow or shoulder. Depending on your injury and specific needs, Dr. Porter may use minimally-invasive arthroscopic surgery to accomplish this.
