How to Manage Torn Biceps

How to Manage Torn Biceps

Do you know you can suffer from a torn bicep accidentally? A bicep is a muscle which begins from your upper arm and is attached to the shoulder via bones and to the elbows by tendons. If you do heavy lifting in the gym or somehow put excessive pressure on that area, chances are you may suffer from torn biceps.

There are two kinds of bicep tears you may encounter:

  • Complete Tears where the tendons are split into two parts resulting in tremendous pain.
  • Partial Tears result when the biceps are hurt but the tendon is not completely severed.

Among the various types of torn biceps, the muscle that is attached to the shoulder experiences the maximum number of bicep ruptures. Suddenly, the bicep tendons get detached from the bone resulting in pain and numbness. You will find a number of sportspersons suffering from this kind of torn biceps.

But why do your biceps get torn?

  1. One of the reasons why you suffer torn biceps is a prolonged period of ignorance. If you have been putting continuous pressure on your shoulder, the biceps muscle can weaken over time. Overuse of the muscles can give rise to conditions of tendinitis (inflammation of the bone to muscle connecting tissue) and injuries in rotator cuff which, in future, might result in torn biceps.
  2. A sudden injury like falling over your arms or hurting your shoulder can result in torn biceps.
  3. Aging is another reason why you can have this complication. Added to this are unusually heavy tasks and overuse of shoulder which can result in this problem.
  4. Some steroids such as Corticosteroids are directly related to the weakening of muscles and tendons.

When you suffer from torn biceps, you encounter symptoms such as:

  • Weakening of the elbow and the shoulder. You will find it troublesome to move your hand.
  • Swelling of the elbow with bruises visible on the elbow and the forearm.
  • You find trouble in twisting your forearm
  • You will experience spasms in the muscles.
  • You can also hear a snapping sound of the muscles.

What should you do if you face this problem?

  1. Continuous applications of ice packs are a must. Repeat the activity 4 times a day with a duration of 20 minutes. You may need to do it for 2 or 3 days.
  2. Avoid activities which put pressure on your hands and shoulders.
  3. Consult a doctor immediately and get some painkillers as recommended.
  4. If you have complete tears, you may need to undergo surgery. Talk to your doctor regarding that. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an orthopedist.

I have back pain from past 2 weeks. I had a pain killers but no use. Kindly suggest me some good tips.
Back pain is 'Apaan Vayu' vitiation as per Ayurveda and have been successfully relieved hundreds of times, without using pain killers tablets. In order to get sustainable relief postural stature of body, correct bed as per suitability, some foods to avoid vitiation of VATA and some herbals should be used. It will be gradually treated without side effects. However if there's is any spondylosis, intervertebral gaps reduction due to any reason, which may be ascertained by X-ray etc, proper physiotherapy/ Yoga etc should be done. Use of warm water to drink, to bath are relaxants. Some herbal oils those relax muscles, may be used. 'Dashmoola' i.e. 10 roots of herbs' preparations are of immense use.

Pain in knee. Some sound is occurring while walking. How can I help my mother tell me some symptoms.
* walking regularly at slow pace without unduly straining helps as it improves blood circulation around knee and eases the joint. *you can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Take bryonia 200---twice daily morning and evening and give feedback after 7 days

: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.
