For biceps tendinitis, in order to continue your progress at home, your therapist will give you a home exercise program similar to what you are performing in the clinic. This program will include pictures of the exercise, description of how to perform, and how many repetitions to perform each time. Some additional exercises you may perform at home include:
- Sleeper stretch
- Bicep stretch
- Side-lying external rotation
Along with performing exercises, it is also important to continue with modalities such as ice to reduce the inflammation in your bicep tendon.
