Dr. Joe DeMarco, chiropractor and owner of OcraMed Health, discusses two common causes of bicep tendonitis. Biceps tendonitis is a very common injury among weight lifters and many active individuals.

First, tightness in the pronator muscles of the forearm, can lead to bicep tendonitis of the distal tendon of the biceps. Dr. Joe demonstrates how to perform massage ball rolling of the pronator teres. He then demonstrates how to perform fascial release of the pronator teres. Keeping the pronator teres muscle loose will take pressure off of the distal portion of the biceps.

Next, Dr. Joe discusses how tightness of the internal rotator muscles of the shoulder will cause biceps tendonitis in the proximal tendons of the biceps. Once again, Dr. Joe demonstrates how to use a massage ball in this area and then performs two different stretches to loosen the internal rotators of the shoulder.

With some consistent work, biceps tendonitis can be avoided.

Had shoulder surgery in February. By May I started getting this searing pain exactly as you described here. I kept gobbling anti-inflammatories and kept icing my arm for the illusion of some relief. Began thinking my surgeon wasn't fessing to a surgical goof, despite my shoulder actually doing much better. So I found your video this last week and began doing the stretches you suggest here. I kid you not, for the first time in many months, I went a whole night without pain, then the whole next day and night and day!! I'm repeating the stretches daily and this is I think day four. I just wanted to thank you for helping me with a problem that was making my life unbearable. Sincerely, Joy

Dude you are a saint, non of these other wack job youtubers get so into detail on the anatomy and explain so in depth why these problems occur and how to properly treat them. Im gonna get a tai chi ball and do these exercises and hopefully my arms will be in better shape soon!

Thanks so much for pointing this out! I've had pain in my elbow for years thinking it was because of my cell phone. Did some cross fiber massage on my bicep tendon in my elbow and it feels great just after one session. You cured it thank you so much! 😃👍🏼
