Bicept Muscle


My right bicept muscle ligament has torn away from my shoulder and is balled up. Some minor pain with certain movements of the arm.I can play golf but tennis is out. Also have an old shoulder injury (torn rotator cuff)which I intend to have repaired.Can the bicept muscle be reattached to the shoulder and what physio do you suggest in the meantime.


  1. I had a similar injury about 6-7 weeks ago, the only differance being that I tore the bicep tendon off the bone near the elbow (softball injury). I was told by my Ortho surgeon that a surgery to repair that type of injury needs to be done within 7-10 days after the injury. If you wait much longer than that, the surgery may not by sucessful. GET IN TO SEE A SURGEON SOON !!!!!!!!!
