Carl Petersen, BPE, BScPT, discusses badminton and bicep tendonitis.

Bicep Tendonitis in Badminton

In badminton, players they can develop biceps tendonitis just from the repetitive nature of the overhead strokes.

Biceps tendonitis can be caused from overuse during the service motion. It can also be caused from hitting late forehands and it’s pain is felt in the front part of the shoulder and it will often be increased pain with any kind of movements forward like this, or with any biceps movements where you’re having to pick something up.

With biceps tendonitis often there will be a nodule that will form on the tendon where the tendon runs through a little groove of bone. That will become extremely painful to touch or palpate and sometimes you’ll feel a click when you raise your arm up and down.

Well once a proper diagnosis is made of bicep tendonitis, the physio sometimes will get in and friction that tendon out. They’ll give a variety of exercises for stretching and strengthening which will help to decrease not only the size of the nodule but increase full range of motion so that you’re able to do all of your strokes without pain.
