Bicipital and Tricipital Tendinitis
The tendons of the biceps and triceps are very sensitive structures and are often prone to injury.
Biceps tendinitis tends to display pain at the front aspect of the shoulder and is a result of inflammation or minor tearing of the tendon. Pain is excessive at the point of the tendon and is more diffuse along the outside and frontal aspect of the arm.
Triceps tendinitis tends to display pain at the tip of the elbow where the triceps tendon inserts and is also a result of inflammation or minor tearing of the tendon.
With both of these ailments, pain often comes on with athletic events and/or repetitive stress. Both of the conditions are controlled well with a combination of non-surgical and non-invasive muscle release therapies, bracing, and rest. If treated early, it is easy to avoid complications and re-injury.
Posterior Impingement Syndrome of the Elbow

Commonly, there is a clicking or popping sound with the sharp pain. The cause is a repetitive stress, which leads to compression. The unfortunate result if left untreated is degeneration, excess bone growth, or loose growths within the joint. When caught early enough, treatment using a combination of bracing, immobilization, and muscle release therapy can reverse the symptoms. However, avoiding treatment for this can result in the need for surgical intervention.

Bursitis is the inflammation of a structure known as a bursa. Bursas are found in several joints of the body, specifically the shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee. These are all sensitive areas which require lots of motion, so it comes as no surprise that the function of the bursa or bursal sac if to provide cushion and protection for these structures. When these bursas become inflamed, there is a pain in all directions and motions and is worse with weight bearing. Bursitis can come from a reaction to a small injury, or from a series of injuries including hypermobility, tendinitis, repetitive stress, etc. Treatment of bursitis is important as prolonged inflammation can result in calcification of the bursa, causing a reduction of the range of motion, pain, and discomfort.
