Biceps Tendon Tear at Elbow

Biceps Tendon Tear at Elbow

A biceps muscle will not grow back after it tears away from the forearm bone. Someone with a torn lower bicep will have to rely on other muscles to help stabilize the elbow, bend the arm and rotate the forearm. A torn lower biceps can result in a 30% reduction in elbow bending strength and a 40% reduction in forearm rotation strength. We rely heavily on our biceps and a lower biceps tear can have a serious impact on our day-to-day lives.

Knee Injuries – MCL Tear and LCL Tear Injury

Knee Injuries – MCL Tear and LCL Tear Injury

The medial collateral ligament (MCL) and the lateral crucial ligament (LCL) are two of the four ligaments that stabilize the knee joint. Both are located on the sides of the knee. The MCL is located on the inside of the knee while the LCL is located on the outside of the knee. The MCL and LCL, also known as the collateral ligaments, control the sideways movement and stability of the knee.

Knee Injuries – PCL Tear Injury

Knee Injuries – PCL Tear Injury

The posterior cruciate ligament (MCL) is located in the back of the knee. It is one of four ligaments that form the knee joint by connecting the femur (thighbone) to the tibia (shinbone). The posterior cruciate ligament helps stabilize the knee by preventing the tibia from moving backwards too far.

Knee Injuries – ACL Tear Injury

Knee Injuries – ACL Tear Injury

ACL tears are one of the most common knee injuries. ACLs are susceptible to tears when they are subjected to quick or intense twisting. These types of movements subject the ACL to tremendous stress which causes tears or strains. An ACL can either tear, rupture or sprain.

About Knee Injuries

About Knee Injuries

The knees are among the largest joints in the human body. They provide flexibility and stability to the legs and lower body. The muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones of the knee all play a major role in the functioning of the knee. The complexity of the knee, with all these different parts, makes it susceptible to several types of injuries. Knee injuries usually occur when force is exerted on the leg or knee causing the knee to twist, bend the wrong way, or hyper-extend. That is why knee injuries often occur in slip and fall accidents and car and truck accidents.
