Back to school means football season and possibly some injuries
The biceps tendon attaches to the labrum and works with it to create arm movement in the shoulder. In many athletes this area is prone to a lot of injuries.
The shoulder is the most commonly dislocated joint in the body and is usually associated with contact sports, including: football, basketball, wrestling, gymnastics and skiing.
Water sports, such as skiing or tubing, can cause serious injuries. One injury common to water sports is distal biceps tendon tears.
Preventing shoulder injuries during the baseball and softball season
A shoulder dislocation is a common injury in contact sports, such as football and hockey, and in sports that may involve falls, such as downhill skiing, gymnastics and volleyball.
