What Causes Triceps Tendonitis?

Triceps tendonitis is caused by an injury to the triceps tendon at its attachment site at the shoulder or elbow. This injury may result from one specific incident or repetitive use over time.

This injury is commonly seen in athletes who require quick activation of the triceps, such as mountain bikers and throwing athletes. When the triceps tendon becomes inflamed, it can often become less mobile and decrease the strength or power needed for a specific sport.

The triceps muscle is significant in many shoulder and elbow motions. Pain is often felt in the back of the shoulder with extension movement due to the primary role of the triceps.

Common Symptoms of Triceps Tendonitis

  • Pain in the back of the shoulder or elbow.
  • Pain with extension of the shoulder or elbow.
  • Clicking or popping of the shoulder.
  • Deep ache behind the shoulder or elbow joint.
  • Pain and stiffness at rest or when lying on the affected side.

Treatment for Triceps Tendonitis

Treatment for triceps tendonitis first involves decreasing the inflammation within the tendon. This can be done through various manual therapy and therapeutic exercises to help improve the healthy blood flow to the injured tendon.

Your physical therapist will work with you to provide a unique treatment plan to meet your goals and needs. Once the triceps tendon starts to heal, it will be essential to strengthen the

muscles surrounding the shoulder and elbow. This can help take the load off the tendon and provide greater stability to the joint.

The physical therapists at Pro Staff are experts in treating this type of injury. So, no matter the cause and stage of healing, we will help you get back to all the activities you love.

How long will it take for me to get better?

Every tendon injury has a different recovery timeline. Tendons can be tricky sometimes as they heal, so it is important to listen to your physical therapist as you recover from this injury. Factors such as injury type, inflammation stage, and activity type can all impact the recovery timeline.
