Rehabilitation of a surgically repaired rupture of the distal biceps tendon in an active middle-aged male: a case report

Authors:  Horschig A, Sayers SP, LaFontaine T, Scheussler S

There is minimal information to guide rehabilitation after complete rupture (and subsequent surgical repair) of the distal tendon of the biceps brachii. The purposes of this case report are to review the rehabilitation concepts used for treating such an injury and discuss how to modify exercises during rehabilitation based on patient progression while adhering to physician recommended guidelines. The progression used for the patient in this case report may be considered for future protocol guidelines in active individuals.
