ruptured bicep tendon


I need info on how to treat a ruptured bicep tendon


  1. What do I do for a ruptured bicep tendon injury? Does wrapping is help? Does exercise help or do I take it easy and not use it much?

    • I just went to the doctor today and he told me I had a torn Bicep and wants me to take physical therapy 3 times a week. That is great and I will do that but, I am going on vacation tomorrow and I need to know what I need to do while on vacation so my arm will stop hurting so bad. Do I need to do some exercises with it or keep it still?

  2. how long is the healing process after someone ruptures a bicep tendon? is surgery always neeeded?any other information or sugestions would be very helpful.
