The symptoms of a distal biceps elbow tendonitis

What are the most common causes?

Overtraining or a sudden contraction of the biceps against resistance are the usual causes of this type of injury.

What are the symptoms?

In tendinitis, a deep ache is felt in the hollow of the elbow when bending the elbow or externally rotating the forearm (supination).
If the tendon ruptures, severe pain and a popping sensation will be felt.
The biceps muscle sometimes migrates upward and there is often a hematoma on the inside of the elbow.

How is it diagnosed?

A MRI is the preferred method to diagnose a distal biceps tear.
