New research on the biology of tendon irritation from Jefferson (Philadelphia University + Thomas Jefferson University) pinpoints key molecular components of injury, opening the possibility of targeting the pathways with pharmaceutical and other interventions.
The biceps muscle is the proximal biceps tendon that attaches to the shoulder. The proximal biceps tendon has two parts: the long head and the short head. Almost all injuries to the proximal biceps are to the long head of the tendon.
