      Distal Bicep Tendon Rupture and wrist functionality

      I had a complete distal bicep rupture about 8 months ago. Surgery and physical therapy were required. I have been back at the gym for a couple months now and mostly all excersises are going well with relatively minor pain with the exception of a few. Any type of reverse curl with palms down, skull crushers, close grip bench is extremely painful. I obviously donít have full range of motion in my wrist because when I try these exercises my elbow will flare out to compensate for my lack of wrist function. I was wondering if anyone else with this injury has had this problem and any rememdies for it. I was thinking on trying maybe bpc157 and tb500, but after 8 months I would think the tendon would be fully healed. Any help is much appreciated.

      I had the surgery 18 months ago. I had the endo-button method and based on my discussions with my surgeon it takes six months for the bone to fully heal (regrow around where the tendon is reattached). Fortunately, I did not have any problems post surgery.

      Any post surgery nerve complications? Is your pain in the wrist? Did you discuss your range of motion issue with your ortho?

      I havenít been back to my ortho since he released my about 3 months ago. I guess I should go back. The pain i am having is in my elbow down to my forearm. I tore mine deadlifting. Unfortunately my insurance isnít the best so I was not able to choose my own surgeon.

      Pain from elbow to forearm...it might be tennis elbow. Iíve had it in the arm that I did not have surgery on.

      Do a youtube search. ATHLEAN-X has several videos on elbow pain and exercises to help it.

      Iíve never had this injury but as a powerlifter itís rather common for it to happen on deadlifts.

      From my research Iíve heard great things about bpc157 and tb500. Iíd do those if I had the money.

      As far as recovery standpoint my priority would be going to a physical therapist as well as doing everything that you can in your own.

      The way powerlifters attack it is to gain range of motion ASAP.
      Once full range of motion/ function is restored frequent high rep low weight workouts get it back up to speed.

      Keep training what you can and stay positive. Brotha. At least you blew out a small muscle and nothing super drastic like low back or shoulder stuff. That takes you out of damn near everything

      Yep I’m trying out some bpc 157 and tb500 now. I was attempting a 675lb deadlift and the arm I used the under grip on ruptured. I’m doing what I can and redoing some of the range of motion excercises I did In physical therapy shortly after surgery.

      Got some BCP157 and TB500 on the way to try to treat a micro tear in distal bicep. Hoping for some relief without surgery.
