About Bicep Tear Injuries

The biceps are muscles located on the front of the upper arm responsible for bending the forearm at the elbow. The bicep is connected to bones by three tendons. One tendon extends from the shoulder’s outer side, attaching the bicep to the top of the shoulder socket. A second tendon secures the bicep to the inner side of the shoulder socket on the shoulder blade (scapula). Finally, a third tendon links the bicep to the lower arm bone (radius) at the elbow.
