Condition: An athlete tries to lift and carry an object but experiences weakness and pain in the shoulder and arm.
Diagnosis: This may be due to a slipped bicipital tendon.
Definition: Bicipital Tendon is a fibrous band that attaches a muscle to a bone. The biceps muscle - the large muscle in the front of your arm - attaches by way of a tendon to the scapula. This tendon lies in the bicepital groove, which can slip out of the groove. As a result an injury usually occurs while the biceps brachii muscle is contracting.
Treatment: Adjusting the tendon back into the groove and then possibly but not always, immobilizing the shoulder to aid the healing process, aided by specific supplementation and specific detoxification.
