I experienced blunt trauma to my left biceps about ten years ago. I was young. Ever since I have had a visible indent on the long head of my bicep and have a noticeably lower amount of strength with the muscle. In the past, I have utilized isolated training to try to solve this, but I have been wondering if there are any surgical or other options for me. I also have bursitis in my left elbow, which was quite severe around the period of this injury. My bursa was punctured, and my physician did not provide me with much-supporting information. I feel this may also contribute to the weakness. I am a 23-year-old male with a high physical activity level. I would be grateful if you have any suggestions.
I went through your history. I suspect a partial tear of the muscle.
First, we have to confirm this diagnosis. Then, an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scan will be helpful to confirm the diagnosis. But by this prolonged duration, the muscle should have undergone fibrosis. So even surgical correction of it will help only a little. If you have pain, it will help, but regarding strength, it will not help you out.
I hope you find it helpful.
