Long head of biceps tendinopathy is an overuse injury that causes pain in the interior section of the elbow. It can be caused by frequent overhead activities such as throwing, swimming, weight lifting and plyometric exercises such as jumping or sudden turns. The repetitive strain often results in fraying or tearing of the tendon and subsequent irritation of the structures around it. Pain associated with long head biceps tendinitis can range from a dull ache to a sharp, intense discomfort that disrupts regular activities.

Long head of biceps tendinopathy is a form of tendonitis that affects the shoulder.

I cannot recommend Dr. Shannon Webster and Dr. Michael Torreiter enough. Both are super friendly and understanding and it has been an absolute pleasure to have met them and been treated by them.

I have been receiving treatment from Dr. Webster for a few months and I've been feeling much better. I had sever knee, shoulder and back pain. I couldn't squat or do push ups without my joints screaming at me. But now I'm not able to only do all those but also feel stronger. The most important piece is that she listened and took my history of many injuries into consideration. And as a dancer, I couldn't have asked for a better chiropractor who not only helped me feel better but also understood my needs.

I also brought my grandmother to Dr. Torreiter for her back pain for acupuncture. He was extremely kind, understanding, compassionate and everything that I could ask for. He made her feel comfortable and explained every step during each treatment. He made sure that she was well taken care of and also made other important referrals that lead to her recovery.

So far I have referred my whole family to these two wonderful individuals and everyone's experience has been equally great. Thanks to them we all are doing much better!
