What Is Biceps Tendonitis?

Biceps tendonitis is a condition in which the long head of the biceps tendon, which attaches the biceps muscle to the shoulder, becomes damaged or inflamed. This can cause a range of symptoms, including:

  • Pain or discomfort in the front of the shoulder or upper arm 
  • Weakness in the affected arm 
  • Cracking or popping sounds when moving the arm 
  • Limited range of motion in the affected arm 

If left untreated, biceps tendonitis can lead to further damage to the shoulder joint and the development of additional conditions like rotator cuff tears or osteoarthritis.

What Causes Biceps Tendonitis?

Biceps tenodesis can be caused by a range of factors, including overuse, injury, or age-related wear and tear. Some common causes of biceps tenodesis include:

  • Repetitive overhead motions, such as those performed by athletes or manual laborers 
  • Sudden injury, such as a fall or collision 
  • Degenerative changes in the shoulder joint due to aging
