Distal Bicep Tendonitis Treatment
I am a 49 year old female who apparently injured my left distal bicep tendon. Saw first doctor, took 1 month of oral cortisone with no relief. had a MRI which showed tennis elbow. Went to physical therapy for 2-3 months. Pain better. Saw doctor #2, said i had tennis elbow with referred pain. Saw doctor #3, repeated MRI & compared to first MRI, both showed distal bicep tendoniits with edema on second MRI. This has been since Februay of 2011. Pain is better, but still there. He recommends immobilization for 4 weeks and/or surgery. Can immobilization after such a long period of time help? Need relief before the end of the year. (met big deductible)

Hi there!

Rest/ immobilization for a few weeks may help with settling the inflammation. This may be accompanied with anti-inflammatory medications and/ or followed by physiotherapy. As for now, I would suggest following your doctors advice.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
