Bicep tendonitis causes pain which occurs in the anterior part of the shoulder named the bicep hole. The bicep tendonitis worsens with the flexion of the shoulder or arm. The sensibility is present in the humeral ditch between the large and the small tuberoses. For the bicep tendonitis a resistance of the muscles testis done, to see if it causes pain in the wrist or in the flexing of the elbow at 90 degrees or when the arm is brought to the body.
Abstract: With hundreds of daily repetitive movements and specific biomechanics of different swimming styles, performance swimmers are prone to develop bicep tendonitis and other strain injuries. If you add the throwing of the ball in the context of a sport and the fight for ball possession such as in the game of polo, the risk of bicep tendonitis and other trauma increase. The aim of the bicep tendonitis studies is to research the incidence of posttraumatic disorders at performance swimmers (swimming and water polo). Method: There were analyzed 76 cases of traumatic disorders, representing 8.8% of all consultations. 63 men were diagnosed and 13 women, aged between 11 and 29 years. Patients were examined clinically and with the help of imaging (radiology, ultrasound, MRI).
Results: The most cases of bicep tendonitis or other injuries occurred to players of polo-53 cases (69.7%). Pathology was dominated by disorders of the shoulder such as bicep tendonitis, 38 cases (50%), with special mention for impingement syndrome with 26 cases (34.2%). Other polarizations of pathology were knee joint (tendonitis and entheses) and interphalangeal joints of the hand (sprains and dislocations). There were also two cases of lumbar sacral pain causes by disk injures that raised questions of therapy treatment.
