BI­CEPS TENDINITIS

Yoga Journal - - Practice Well -

Two ten­dons at­tach to the bi­ceps: One con­nects over the humeral head into the shal­low GH joint on the scapula; the other at­taches to the cora­coid process, a bony pro­tru­sion on the scapula. When stu­dents com­plain of pain in the front of the shoul­der, it can mean one or both of these bi­ceps ten­dons are ir­ri­tated. A likely cul­prit is poor align­ment of the shoul­ders in Chat­u­ranga. When low­er­ing, the bi­ceps ten­dons can eas­ily be­come over­stretched and even tear.
